De Kevie nature reserve

In south-east Tongeren you can step out of the lively buzz of the city centre, straight into a calm, green oasis. The extensive De Kevie nature reserve is home to many valuable flora and fauna. Empty meadows give way to dense marshland, while the river Jeker meanders through valley woodlands full of thick woodland borders, centuries-old knot willows and transparent pools and ditches. Every day, hundreds of walkers, cyclists and sport lovers come here to enjoy the fresh air.

Four signposted walks run through the park. You can buy a hiking map ‘Langs de flanken van de Jeker’ (Along the banks of the Jeker) from Tourism Tongeren.
