Maasmechelen is the place to be for a day trip with young kids. There are numerous activities set up especially for this age group. The Beestige Boelbos, the Pipa’s Castle Park, the play pit at Terhills and the hike to the water, the Zandloper Path and the play opportunities at the Mechelse Heide… we could go on and on. Are you looking for a fun day out with your little MaasMonsters? Then you’ve come to the right place. We’ll briefly highlight the B’Oscars for you!

Are you already familiar with the B’Oscars?


This is the most prestigious prize for natural talent in the Hoge Kempen National Park! Ree Witherspoon and Arnold Schwarzenever challenge you to put yourself in the shoes of a character who is very important to the national park. Would you like to be a miner? Then leave through the Terhills gateway. Do you want to become a real shepherd of the national park? Then depart for your unforgettable adventure via the Mechelse Heide gateway.


In addition to the starting points in Maasmechelen, you can also take a look at the gateways in Pietersheim, Kattevennen, Lieteberg, and As. In those routes, you can participate in the B’Oscars as an astronaut, forest ranger, knight, or insect expert.


Have you chosen your starting point? Then set off for an interactive hike of 3.5 to 5 km. Head out onto the trail with the IZI.TRAVELL app and the special B’Oscar booklet. That way, you won’t make a mistake on your exciting tour and you won’t miss any stops or tips to collect your prize at the end of your hike.


If you’re still wired after your B’Oscars adventure, you can link this activity to many other kid-friendly activities in Maasmechelen. Go play in the sand at the Zandloper Path or in the play pit at Terhills.


All the kid-friendly activities can be found in the overview on the children’s page. Come to Maasmechelen and have an unforgettable day soon.
