We took the train from Hasselt to Genk, got off in Bokrijk and spent all afternoon wondering a winter wonderland. Beautiful surroundings, green, good for families.

I have been there several times, the first time when i was i child an later in my teens and adult life. This is a very interesting park, if you are eager to learn and see how people lived in Flanders a few hunderds of years ago. I must say that that rally needs a patch up (but as usaual... More

Take shoes to have a long walk through, camera for beautiful photos, and clothing according with the weather -- you will be... More

The so called open air museum is closed!!! It's mentioned everywhere in the city about this attraction, but only in one place on there website and at the gate of the museum few hundred meters inside the park that it's closed during winter, need to give more info. Other than that the park and plants are very nice.

It's at 2 kilometers from home. So we go there often with bicycle. Nice place to sit in the sun. But i wouldn't pay 5 € for a parking place.

Just great to be walking and discovering the old houses, to meet the actors dressed like 200 or more years before... The must is to get dressed like this and let the local photographer take a family portrait with its old camera. The kids loved the tour on the chariot and the old games. The restaurant has a nice terrace... More

The open air museum brings you to another time. Great place for children, Big playground, a lot of festivals in the summer, relaxing in nature and having a meal or cup of coffee.
