De naam Woestijn ?

Vreemde benaming op het eerste zicht maar eigenlijk is het dat niet : het is een afgeleide van 'wastine', een braakland, onontgonnen gebied in de vroege middeleeuwen en wellicht begroeid met grassen, heide, struiken en bomen. Herders hoedden er overdag hun kudde. Tot voor enkele eeuwen waren er overal in Vlaanderen en Brabant zulke uitgestrekte wastines.

Experience the region

When winter lays its white blanket over the woods and slopes of the walking province of Flemish Brabant, the landscapes change into the most beautiful paintings. The perfect moment to collect vitamins and oxygen with a brisk walk before returning to the cosy warmth.
Look for nice places in our region. Whether it's hiking or biking, a culinary or artistic highlight, or a subdued reminder of dark days; the Pajottenland has many winter wonders to overwhelm you.
Stroll along the Zepposmolen mill with its rich history, the last mill in the Pajottenland that is still mills and enjoy a wide view over the Ledeberg, the Dender valley and rolling fields and meadows.

Developed by Tourism Pajottenland & Zenne Valley in close collaboration with the Regional Guides Pajottenland & Zenne Valley, the car route starts and ends at the castle of Gaasbeek. A 65 km long tour then leads you past some of the region's most beautiful spots and tourist attractions which are unfortunately still unknown to many people. Groups of friends, colleagues, associations and families can also make this fascinating voyage of discovery accompanied by a regional guide.

In our municipality there are a number of walking loops, which are well signposted with hexagonal signs.

In addition, there is also a section of the Pajottenland Walking Network in Roosdaal and the cycle and mountain bike network runs right through De Woestijn.
