Nature reserves

Come with me and visit some of Belgium’s nature reserves which are dotted throughout the country. Let’s discover what plants and animals can be found there. Directions and maps are included.

Het Zwin Nature Park, Knokke-Heist, Belgium

Het Zwin Nature Park

Het Zwin Nature Park outside Knokke-Heist on the Belgian coast has been completely revamped. It’s a wonderful place to visit to learn about birds, and see them in real life. In the visitor centre you can learn all about bird migration, and then on the nature trail you can see the birds from special observation hides. Highly recommended for kids!

Heidebos near Moerbeke

Between the villages of Moerbeke and Wachtebeke, a few kilometres to the east of Sint-Niklaas, lies the Heidebos, a large nature reserve incorporating deciduous and coniferous forests as well as a vast expanse of heath land. Three signposted walks start from the car park on Fortstraat; all are ideal for young children.Read More »Heidebos near Moerbeke
