    Visited on 31st October. The gold, brown, red and orange Autumn colours were just beautiful!

    Tranquil, relaxed and very well-maintained Japanese-style gardens to walk around. Lots of Koi carp and lovely waterfall feature.

    There is a café with terrace, picnic area, and when we were there a food truck selling Japanese tea and snacks.

    6€ entry fee for an adult. Entry was a bit confusing. The ticket desk was open but when you went up to it you were redirected to a ticket machine that didn't seem to work very well. Then when the queue built up there you were called back to the ticket desk to buy tickets!

    Beautiful place for an afternoon stroll and would love to go back and see it in different seasons.

    This a nice area to have a bike tour. The abbey is big and impressive. You can drink something on the terrace of the 'Paardenstallen'.

    Nice to learn how Jenever is made. Very friendly staff. At the time we went there (july 2021) there were a lot of pinballmachines in the museum, as a temporary exhibition. With the entrance ticket you get a free tasting at the end of the tour!

    Biking in and around Hasselt is fun. I often bike along the Canal Albert and around Bokrijk. It usually takes around 1-2 hours to go from the center to Bokrijk and getting back.

    I was surprised how much I liked Plopsa Hasselt. Lots of fun things to do for children, very well maintained and clean.

    We visited this museum on a very hot day. The heat was a bit in the museum because there was no air conditioning. Some interesting things to see but overall a bit short for our English-speaking friends.

    Of the many cathedrals we visited in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany this was by far my favorite. The black and white marble contrasted with gold is striking and gorgeous. I could have sat and stared for hours at all the beauty housed inside this most holy site.

    A small museum/based in an old house - free. Worth a visit if you are interested in the town Hasselt (note not in English but you may have to request audio from reception). Interesting regarding Hasselt's trades such as clocks, sliver ornaments, buildings/old hotels - I found interesting. full floor re religion - not my thing. however ground floor maps/history of Hasselt going back in time / how it has gradually changed.

    I always attend each exhibition here. De gustibus et coloribus non disputandum est, but I find every exhibition surprising, fresh and unique. The whole building itself is always used as a living and ever changing backdrop for the artworks. Expect installations, video, performance and only a rare painting or "classic" piece of art.

    We went on a walking and tasting tour of Hasselt and one of our stops was across from here, our guide explained that this is the old town hall, mostly used these days for weddings etc.

    We enjoyed a sunny day at this relatively new swimming pool in Hasselt. They are located near the Japanese Garden and Plopsaland and within walking distance of Hasselt's city centre. There is free parking along the road.

    You pay a low fee of just € 2.50 (4-18) / € 3.50 for adults. There is a good variety of both indoor and outdoor pools, plenty of changing rooms, lockers and two outlets for snacks.

    We enjoyed a great day of water fun at this swimming pool and will be back!
