Military domain Hechtel / Koerselse Heide

The World > Europe > Belgium

  • Like / unlike
  • thumbs up
  • thumbs down

This beautiful area of heath land is part of a military domain betwean Hechtel and Helchteren. At this location it doesn't feel like you are in Belgium, but rather somewhere in an African savanna. There are lots of sand and even some little sandstorms if the weather is dry enough.

Because it is a military domain where soldiers of the Belgian army practice on a regular basis, you can find some tank wrecks and even some bullet shells and other military waste in this area.

This is an overview of Belgium

Belgium is a country in northwest Europe. Founding member of the European Union, it covers an area of 30,528 square kilometres and has a population of about 10.7 million.

From the end of the Middle Ages until the 17th century, it was a prosperous centre of commerce and culture. Upon its independence, Belgium eagerly participated in the Industrial Revolution and, at the end of the nineteenth century, possessed several colonies in Africa. Today, Belgium's strongly globalized economy and its transportation infrastructure are integrated with the rest of Europe. Its location at the heart of a highly industrialized region helps made it 2007 the world's 15th largest trading nation.

Cultural life is nowadays concentrated within each language community and a variety of barriers have made a shared cultural sphere less pronounced. Anyway, the region corresponding to today's Belgium has seen the flourishing of major artistic movements that have had tremendous influence on European art and culture.
