Connecterra is the main gateway to the Hoge Kempen National Park, which is the only national park in Belgium. More than 25 years ago the Eisden coalmine was operating at this location and left behind a transformed landscape of hills and lakes. Today Connecterra is the ideal place for nature lovers and hikers and offers beautiful panoramic views of its surroundings.

The 5 other gateways to the Hoge Kempen National Park are Mechelse Heide in Maasmechelen, Pietersheim in Lanaken, Kattevennen in Genk, Station of As and Lieteberg in Zutendaal.

Location: Zetellaan 54, 3630 Maasmechelen, Belgium
