The rural character of Herzele makes the hearts of residents, tourists and holidaymakers beat faster. Walkers and cyclists feel at home here thanks to the many slow-paced paths, forests, walking and cycling routes and fantastic views.
Thanks to, among other things, the three mills, many churches and chapels and some beautiful buildings such as the aldermen's house, there is also a great deal to see in Herzele. And then of course we must not forget the fortress site, one of the few fortress sites still standing in East Flanders. An absolute must-see!
The location at the foot of the Flemish Ardennes makes Herzele a cycling racing-friendly municipality, beloved not only by recreational cyclists but also by cycling racing enthusiasts who can compete in a great many races on the territory of Herzele.
