Charming stopover

Do you want to stay in the oldest city in Belgium, or are you looking for a stopover on your cycling or hiking trip? Then stay at the budget-friendly Begeinhof hostel. The hostel is based in one of the oldest beguinages in Flanders near the Motten park and Tongeren’s Grote Markt. Relax in the warm and welcoming brasserie, try your hand at a parlour game or take a trip on a free bicycle. This charming hostel hosts individuals and groups alike, and the café attracts a mix of guests and locals.

Out and about in Haspengouw

No matter the season, the Haspengouw countryside is always a great place to cycle or hike. The area is famous for its blossoming trees and there’s a good reason it is known as the Tuscany of Belgium. Tongeren is also the oldest city in Belgium. The historic city centre has atmospheric streets and squares, cafés and romantic boulevards. In the Gallo-Roman museum, you can learn all about the city’s Roman past and on Sunday morning you can browse the largest antique and flea market in the Benelux. The city offers an ideal blend of nature, culture and relaxation.
