Things to do- Mijnterril in Heusden
Ten minutes’ drive from B&BNumber5.
Heusden-Zolder used to be in the middle of the Limburg mining area.
The mine slag heap originated as a waste mountain from the mines in Heusden and offers a beautiful view of the area.
On the mine slag heap – a nature reserve of 124 hectares and at an altitude of 85 meters above the surroundings – you will find special vegetation. The mountain contains a lot of slate and shale: hard rock types but very rich in minerals.
The mining slag heap is accessible from sunrise to sunset. A walking route has been mapped out so that you can fully enjoy the nature and the beautiful view.
