I take my bike out of the car and ride along Genk via a bicycle loop that I mapped out. On my way lies this beautiful open-air museum. It's been since my childhood, because this was THE school trip after all. This is where you end up in life in 1913. It not only tells the story of the past of the Kempen, but also that of Haspengouw and the region of East and West Flanders. During the winter months we try to pick up one of the winter evenings with the family. Those glowing fires, mulled wine, you would even get warm on cold days.
