Ready to Join?

You are invited to join me on a magical trip to the little town of Bilzen, in the heart of Limburg !
It is one hour by car (carpooling) and one hour and a half by train (on Saturdays, via Hasselt), from Brussels.
I will take the train at Brussels North Station leaving at 09:23.
You will find me as of 09:00 in the Starbucks coffeeshop inside the station.
If you take the train, buy the weekend ticket, it’s cheaper.
We will arrive at Bilzen Station shortly after 11:00.
We’ll be waiting in front of the station building for those who take the car.
You can park for free at Parking CC (« Cultuurcentrum ») De Kimpel, Eikenlaan 28.
From Bilzen Station it is only a short walk to ‘t Solveldje, where Stefan & Liesbeth will be waiting for us at 11:15.
Stefan is a caretaker of owls, of different size and species.
And he is going to have a presentation on owls for us, how they live, what they eat, etc etc. !
The presentation will last for about one hour.
The price is 50 Euro for the group, so please prepare change.
There are also some very friendly and playful cats and dogs there !
After the owl presentation, we’ll stroll to the city centre, where we’ll have lunch at « Chopin », at 13:00 !
Please indicate if you want to join for lunch, so I can do the booking for the group !
After lunch, we’ll have a walk through Bilzen.
There are plenty of things to see : the old town hall, the viewing platform on the « Borreberg », the old watermill in the park…
We’ll finish with a coffee, or a good beer.
