In the Pajottenland, more specifically the Zenne Valley, lambic and geuze are ubiquitous.
To sweeten the sour taste of geuze or lambic, people used to use a ‘lambiekstoemper’ to crumble a sugar cube into the glass.
On this walk, be sure to try these typical beers in one of the cafés along the way.
Also discover the tranquil Zenne trail that passes by the Eizingen mill site and the play forest.
Buizingen has always been a wooded place, but the Kluisbos in particular is ideal for getting some fresh air. Hence the former presence of sanatoria and the children’s sanatorium for tuberculosis patients near these woods.
Take a peek inside Saint Vincentius Church, also known as the church without a tower. Although the tower was never completed and the church thus lacks a spire, Buizingen can be proud of the listed 18th-century Van Peteghem organ.
Catch your breath at café-brewery Den Herberg, owned by the Devillé family, where they have been brewing the tastiest beers since 2007. Recently, they also started serving an Oude Geuze Devillé and a delicious Herberg Lambic.
Where else but in the Zenne Valley would you want to taste a lambic?
