De Steen Christmas walk

Every year Den Overkant, a local committee in Zoersel, organizes a Christmas-themed walk with a story for young and old that evolves as you walk around the forest!

This year the Christmas story is titled ‘De Steen’, which translates to ‘The Stone’. It is about a fortune lost and gained back again. Our kids loved the cat and they spent most of the time trying to make it move with a rope. It was pretty difficult to continue the walk!

The amount of detail is astonishing!

The decorations are beautiful – and of course the cat helped! This year you can also contribute to the walk. Paint a stone and leave it there! NB: the stone needs to be smaller than 10cm, just in case you were planning to paint a Guernica 🙂

It’s pretty cool and all goes well in the end!!

There is also a nativity scene near the start of the walk

The shepherd’s dog is a funny detail at the nativity scene
