An Autumn Walk in Nature Reserve De Teut

I’ve said it before but there’s just something about autumn that makes me feel so cozy, all warm and fuzzy inside. I love the changing colours, the falling leaves, wearing cosy sweaters… Although the weather wasn’t great (it was raining. Again. Damn you Belgian weather!), we went on a little autumn walk in nature reserve De Teut, which is located in Zonhoven, Belgium.

This area is prettiest the last weeks of August when the moorland is in bloom. But for some reason, I never seem to make it there to see it in that state. It’s also totally worth a visit in October. The heather has almost totally lost it’s bright violet colour but has instead turned into a darker autumn-like brown. It’s gorgeous!

And believe me when I say this, the pictures I took don’t do it justice!

There are different routes to walk through the reserve. There is a bike route where the old railroad used to be. And a route for horseback riding. When you enter the area you can walk up a sandhill and have the most amazing view over the whole reserve!

At the end of most routes, you’ll encounter a lake. This is the perfect spot to take a little break and maybe have a little afternoon snack if you fancy. Be sure to take your trash with you, don’t spoil this beautiful reserve! And while we’re at it, don’t go walking off the beaten track either. Make sure you don’t crush the heather.

I love having a Sunday afternoon walk at De Teut. It’s such a calm area and it’s just breath-taking all year round. Do give it a visit if you ever find yourself in the area!

 

Enjoy the beauty that is all around you . . .
