Cycling through the Trees
In the Pijnven forest in Hechtel-Eksel, a village in the Belgian province of Limburg, you can literally cycle through the trees. It is an iconic bicycle bridge that allows you to cycle between the treetops in the Bosland nature reserve. With this innovative cycling experience, the makers want to put an extra experience on the Limburg cycling route network, Limburg's greatest tourist asset!
