Faluintjesroute in Aalst (Belgium)
The Faluintjesstreek is an old geographical area between four municipalities, which are now part of the city of Aalst: Baardegem, Herdersem, Meldert and Moorsel. This quiet area east of Aalst has lots of green, and small unpaved roads through the nature. There are some gravel spots on the route, but don't let that deter you. After all, you don't want to miss out on the beauty of this part of Flanders.
Aalst is the starting point of this cycle route. The Ajuinenstad (Onion City), "world-famous" for its carnival, is not far from Brussels and is therefore easily accessible by public transport or car. We first ride in the direction of Brussels but stay west of the Pajottenland. The route is designed to really discover the Faluintjes region. We pass successively the villages of this region: Meldert, Baardeegem, Moorsel, and Herdegem. Via the Dender we arrive back in Aalst.
Starting point and parking lot:
- Denderstraat (parking behind railway station), 9100 Aalst
