Back to the Weelde of yesteryear

In the municipality of Ravels, you will find the village of Weelde, with a historical centre that dates back to the 15th century. Witnesses to its history include several historical buildings and structures such as the mill Arbeit Adelt, the Sint-Michielskerk and the moat known as ‘De Burcht’, which used to belong to the Hof Ten Berge. The cluster of streets in the centre is egg-shaped, giving rise to its nickname, ‘the egg of Weelde’.

The role of Kempens Landschap

Since 2002, our organisation has guided the municipality of Ravels in the synchronisation of planned works in the historical centre of Weelde. To accomplish this, a master plan was drawn up with input from local residents and a comprehensive vision of the ‘egg’ of Weelde developed. The first project was the repair of the historical Burcht, for which special mud balls were used.
