In the middle of the Pajottenland 


Budding spring flowers, white blossoms from the orchards, sweltering warmth above the hayfields make the undulations of the walking province of Flemish Brabant, once again the most beautiful paintings. Throughout the year, it's the perfect time to get some vitamins and oxygen by taking a brisk walk before heading back to the cosy terraces.

Go looking for nice places in our region. Whether it is walking or cycling, a culinary or artistic tour de force, or a modest reminder of dark days; the Pajottenland has many assets to overwhelm you.
We would like to invite you to discover this unique paradise piece of nature:
Picturesque and imposing castles, surprising museums or authentic
mills ...
You will also find plenty of breweries and gueuze blending here, beautiful square farms with traditional regional producers.
Action and relaxation, there is something for everyone ...

 Woestijn ?

The name "Woestijn"?
Strange name at first sight but actually it is not : it is derived from 'wastine', a wasteland, undeveloped area in the early Middle Ages and perhaps overgrown with grasses, heather, shrubs and trees. Shepherds herded their flock there during the day. Until a few centuries ago there were such extensive wastines everywhere in Flanders and Brabant.
