Provinciedomein Tillegembos

Did you know that Tillegembos is the oldest provincial domain in West Flanders? The beautiful domain covers no less than 131 hectares and has a lot of interesting fauna and flora in store for its visitors. You will also find extensive footpaths, sunbathing and playing fields and a cosy inn 'In de Trutselaar'. Tillegem also has some cultural history to offer: a beautiful castle with formal garden and a neo-Gothic domain farm with a horse mill.


The 98 ha green area is open as a walking area but the main axes are also accessible to cyclists. Beech and coniferous trees mainly adorn the forest here. Be sure to pop into the adjoining castle, which houses the Nature Centre and the Observatory. You will learn all about nature on land and the stars in the sky! A planet trail, cafeteria and several picnic areas complete your happiness!


Anyone wandering around Zedelgem today and passing by the Vloethemveld can hardly imagine it, but this place played an important role in both world wars. The military domain is rarely open to the public because of its exceptional natural values. Enquire at Tourism Zedelgem about the possibilities for guided tours. But the woods around the military domain, on former moorland, are perfect for a nature walk. A robust watchtower offers a view of this military domain with its special war history and beautiful nature. There is a fun play area for children: a totem pole, fun entrance gates with animals in beautiful carvings, stepping blocks, wooden play mushrooms, a camp and a tunnel, a sandberg with picnic benches, ... stimulate the imagination.
