Some of us will need some fresh air after the elections, others want to walk a bit after spending the week in the office, some want to see some nature and others…want to meet new people. And some just come for the beer afterwards. All of this you will find when participating in this hike: walking, talking, laughing, exercise, nice people, interesting people, single people, smart people, artists, sportsmen, beer, nature, ……..
We will walk from the tram terminus in Tervuren (next to the renovated Africa museum) to Leuven. We will pass by some nice parcs, open fields, forests, small villages,…to end in Leuven where we will have a drink all together before returning to Brussels.
We meet at 12h00 at the station in Tervuren. Best is to take tram 44 from Montgomery to Tervuren station.
for people prefer to come by car: there is a parking space at the Tervuren station and you can return there by bus (De Lijn) from Leuven
Distance: ~ 19 km
Net walking time: ~ 4h00
Level: open for everyone
In the unlikely case of too bad weather, we may cancel a hike, even few hours before the event. If this must happen, we will of course update the Meetup website and send out an email to those registered. So, it is important to have access to either the Meetup.com website and/or your emails.
●● What to bring:
- warm comfortable hiking clothes
- water (1l) and some snacks for the way
(I love chocolate and small salami saucissons when you plan to share with me)
- sun protection oil, a head and sunglasses OR a raincoat
(please watch the weather forcast)
- some money to pay Maikel a drink ;-)
●● Basic rules:
Please RSVP only if you really intend to come. And if your plans change, update your RSVP asap, even hours before the walk. This is basic courtesy towards others. Repeated late cancellations are not well considered (at all). No-shows even worse.
Do not show up for a hike unless you are on the roster (i.e. Yes RSVP, but not Wait Listed).

As the participation in the events is strictly voluntary and you freely choose to join, it is the responsibility of individuals participating to ensure that they are fit enough and have adequate coverage to protect themselves.
