's Hertogenmolens Aarschot
At the end of the ramparts behind het Begijnhof (Beguinage), there has been a water mill complex acting as an island in the river Demer since the 16th century. After a successful, 5-year restoration, the impressive building has been given a new purpose.
's Hertogenmolens Hotel has 25 charming rooms with a soothing view out onto the flowing water. A footbridge along the locks takes you to the brasserie, which boasts a terrace that floats on the Demer for a lovely romantic evening.
Aarschot is nestled on the Demerboorden (banks of the river Demer), between the slopes of the Hageland.
As a lively trade centre, with its beautiful location, hospitality and cultural richness, the city was given the name: "Pearl of the Hageland".
The Demer valley charms nature lovers. The Langdorp woods are a dream setting for walkers
