GENK – Openluchtmuseum Bokrijk

The domain of Bokrijk is some 550 hectare large and consist of woods, gardens, farmland and ponds. Most of all, the Bokrijk Open Air Museum is known for its magnificent collection of old Flemish houses and farms. A large part of the Flemish countryside must have look like this around 1850. Visitors can walk through the entire park and admire the cottages and farms of the different Flemish provinces : East and West Flanders, The Campine region, Brabant, and of course Limburg. Since a few years, also a small old city can be admired, with a cafe in a cellar included. In some of the houses local people portray the old professions of way back when (farmers, barbers, shoemakers, basketry makers, and so on…). In some of the farms restaurants have been installed, so that the visit can be combined with a good healthy traditional Flemish dish.
