We recommend to visit the following places in the environment of Erperheide
Lommel SaharaBack to the list
A desert-like landscape, around a clear blue lake bordered by forests of fir trees. It's the ideal spot for walkers and nature lovers. The arid and sandy landscape came about as a result of gases emanating from a former zinc factory located there. The lake is the result of sand mining. Forests were planted around the area to prevent further expansion.The Sahara is located next to the Kempen canal, which has an elegant bridge leading to the area. There are lots of walking and cycling routes.
