The day starts with coffee and Bilzen pie in one of the cosiest taverns in the local market place. After a short town walk we head over to the Grand Commandery and unveil all of its secrets, followed by lunch or a short break.
In the afternoon we tour the fruit region with its countless churches, chapels and castles. Embedded in a peaceful landscape, these monuments have remained untouched. In Borgloon we visit the Helshoven chapel with its miracle statue of Our Lady. We also visit the abbey of Colen-Kerniel, known for its relic shrine of St. Odilia and the choir stall of St. Lutgardis. Both are fine examples of our national heritage.
