Every year, on the first weekend of June, Open Church Days celebrate our religious heritage.
For this 12th edition, we suggest that you draw your inspiration from the "Emotions".
Because religious buildings are like kaleidoscopes radiating a thousand lights. They are anchored in the mysteries of the invisible, shaped by the pride or humility of generations, vibrating with intense musical waves... Impossible to remain insensitive to all the stories they whisper! Doesn't the procession of their statues stir up excitement? And the caress of the polished reliefs of soft feelings? Let yourself be touched, in depth...
Our religious and cultural heritage in its diversity and uniqueness is presentable. The doors should be open not only to tourists, but also to the locals, so that they can admire the well-preserved churches.
Experience the Flemish Masters in 45 churches, chapels, monasteries, beguinages, castles and town halls, from Bocholt to Nieuwpoort. From 1 June to 30 September 2019
Discover our exhibition "The Unusual in Religious Buildings" at Our Lady of the Rosary church in Moha (Wanze) and enjoy this church adorned with stained glass windows in a thousand colours, which celebrates precisely the centenary of its reconstruction.
11 welcoming rural churches open their doors to you to share their history, treasures and unique atmosphere. Original and inspiring destinations for your family excursions.
