Very nice piece of art in the middle of the fruit tree-area! Must be amazing when all the trees are florishing! Recommended!

Maybe this is a step in the right direction: a transparent church building. 3O Tons of steel went into this quirky artwork, aptly named “reading between the lines” and sitting on a hill in Borgloon. Depending on the perspective of the viewer, the church is...More

Belgium has a lot to offer and many of these sides are off the beaten track. This little gem is one of them. In the middle of nowhere in the region Haspengouw, known for its fruit and even wine, we find this wonderful "church" which...More

Nice architecture. Superb view of the valley through the church. Good place to spend evening. Remember that you can't go there by car. You need to walk a bit.

This is an amazingly romantic place. Part of the charm is the walk up there in the countryside. The downside is that it appears to be quite a popular attraction. So if you are there & if there is a crowd, like what happened to...More

We visited this unique church last year with our granddaughter and Belgian friends. This is a site we would never have known about if not for our friends. Just a lovely area of Belgium to visit. Nice place for a walk.

This place has been pictured all over Facebook so maybe we were expecting more. Really not worth the drive out of your way - it would be a pleasant surprise IF you were already in the area, but don't go just for this. Also -...More

This is just an artwork and not really the size of a church. As such people cannot really "sit" in the church. It is accessible to the public but actually on private ground. So consent to use the area may be difficult.
