Walking around Wonck

A morning 10 km country walk to go with your afternoon visit to the Tower of Eben-Ezer that I covered in a previous post

This post is a partner post to the one I wrote last week about The Tower of Eben-Ezer. I did this 10 km country walk around the village of Wonck in the morning, and then visited the Tower in the afternoon. In other words you can combine the two and enjoy a full day out in this region of east Belgium.

I parked in the car park at the Tower and followed this route I found on Wikiloc (thanks Monsieur Piette). It’s a very pleasant walk along quiet country lanes, across fields and through a couple of small copses, with some refreshing views over the undulating landscape of both Wallonia and Flanders (the walk is in Wallonia but we are right on the border here, looking into Flanders). Here are a few photos.

If it’s open, you could get a bit to eat and a drink at the Moulin du Broukay

All paths lead straight ahead!

So there you are. An idea for a great day out by yourself, with friends, family …

… or partner.

  1. Beautiful!

  2. Looks like a wonderful place to explore. Gorgeous images.

  3. Ideal for a sunny day,so it seems 🙂 Is the church tower in Wonck?

    • By the way, have you decided in favour of Wikiloc now?

      • Well I notice that there is a lot more choice of walking and cycling route on Wikiloc and Gpsies than RouteYou. Whether I will use Wikiloc or Gpsies to display my own routes remains to be seen. For the moment I am happy to use other people’s routes and link back to them. I find that following other hikers’ routes (including yours!) takes me to places I would never have considered myself.

    • Yes the church is in Wonck village Guido.

  4. What a wonderful area!

  5. Very pretty!

    • Thanks Anabel, it was certainly a lovely morning walk. I must go back there in the spring. I saw a noticeboard saying that wild bee and fly orchids grow in the meadows over there.

  6. Yet another lovely day for walking. It looks cold but very bright. I love your photo with the church steeple between the tall trees, Denzil.

  7. This scenery looks so familiar. Very Belgian! 🙂

  8. It’s a beautiful place for a walk in this region ,i love the little hills and the little villages over there…beautiful scenery on your pictures Denzil !

    • It seems as if you know this region well Leen. It was my first visit here, and won’t be my last. Thank you for your compliments on my photos.

  9. Denzil – beautiful pictures – I am definitely adding this area to my “places to see” – I may need to start a separate list called “places to walk and stop to have a good Belgian beer.”

  10. That moulin looks rather inviting. I do like stone buildings. Good place for a Christmas drink (if they’re open, of course 🙂 ) Wishing you health and happiness in 2017, Denzil. Enjoy your walking!

  11. A very Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy New Year to you all!

  13. Carol Sherritt sent me your blog post. So I wanted to say hi. 🙂

    • Hi Marsha, good to have you along for the walk. Hope you enjoyed it!

      • It was beautiful. I love to walk. Carol introduced me to a couple of you who enjoy posting walks. My page, http://wp.me/P7tP3I-gS, lists photo challenges online, and Carol talked about your blog and Restless Jo’s Walks. I only took the time to look at both blogs briefly because Carol and I are on vacation together in Melbourne. I live in California, so it’s a busy walking time in real time. 🙂 Hope to get better acquainted with you in the near future. 🙂
