GENK – Cosmodrome – National Park Kattevennen

The name Kattevennen recalls the English “cattle”, which means cattle.
There used to be many wet zones in this area through the valley of the Wiemesmeerbeek. The water of that stream had an acidic and nutrient-poor character. This resulted in typical plants and animals. Over time, the sources of this stream have dried up.
Kattevennen is an important recreational resort with numerous tourist, sporting and educational attractions. In the middle of the domain you will find Sport Vlaanderen with facilities such as a sports hall, sports fields, a riding school…
Kattevennen, gateway to the Hoge Kempen National Park, is a forest area in which the cosmodrome is central. Observe the starry sky or enjoy the star projection in the dome room. ‘Katevennen’ also offers numerous sporting options such as horseback riding, mountain biking, cycling and mini golf.
