There was a time when anthills could be seen at every intersection in the forest. These days they are a rather rare occurrence. On this hike, we counted 14 anthills, right next to the trail. Take it as a sort of geocaching exercise.

The hike starts and ends at Schönberg, a very pretty (non-touristic) village in Belgium near the border to Germany. The guide says that Schönberg looks very German, while the dark beer in the local pubs is decidedly Belgian.

The hike is partly through forests and partly through farmlands - nothing really spectacular. Its the right thing to do when the weather is not that stable, or when you simply want to explore an area you haven't really been to.

And if you haven't found all the 14 anthills, just go it again.
