Unwind and Enjoy the Nature at Bolderberg

The top of Bolderberg is a natural viewpoint in nature reserve De Wijers. It offers a beautiful panorama of the ponds and the castle of Terlaemen. At the top you can also find a hermitage and the Chapel of Our Lady of Loreto.

The history of the hermitage dates back to 1672, when Lambert Hoelen the first hermit, stayed in Loreto, Italy. During his stay in the pilgrimage house in Loreto he was so impressed by the simplicity of this sacred house that he wanted to recreate it himself when he returned home. Today the hermitage is still inhabited and the Chapel of Our Lady of Loreto is open for public.

When you visit the top of Bolderberg you can bring a pebble and deposit it at the pilgrim's cross, this way you symbolically contribute to world peace.
