How to get there:
By train: there are two train stations approximately 15-20 minutes of walking from the start of the tour, called 'Heide' and 'Kijkuit'.
By car: there is plenty of parking space surrounding the visitor centre, which is where the walk starts. The exact address would be: Heibloemlaan 90, 2920 Kalmthout
The Kalmthout Heath (or in dutch: Kalmthoutse heide) is probably one of the better known nature reserves in Belgium. Probably because it is one of the oldest and largest, but also because of its beautiful nature and diversity. It is part of the even larger 'De Zoom–Kalmthoutse Heide Cross-Border Park' of which one half is located in the Netherlands (De Zoom) and the other half in Belgium (Kalmthoutse Heide). Since the park is so large and diverse there are a lot of different options, going from kid-friendly walks of a few kilometers to a big hike of more than 24 kilometers covering most of the park. Many walks start at the visitor center so if you change your mind right before the walk, your can still take a different route, all of them are very well indicated.
