Trans-Vlaams-Brabant, Diest - Geraardsbergen, 175 km

This trail is interesting if you like the varied and small scale farming landscape of Flanders and Brabant. Historically this part of Belgium might interest you because it is along the very old border the Romans already knew as a language border, which it continues to be up till our time (and beyond). Walking this path you won't get bored: towns, villages, castles and old farmsteads are strung together.
