Haspengouw

Haspengouw in Limburg is famous for its fruit and traditional square farmsteads. A copy of the village of Ulbeek as it looked around the middle of the 19th century was created for the Haspengouw section of the museum. The houses and buildings are concentrated around a small village square with two ponds and lime trees. These days, it is where you can meet the Bokrijk actors who transport you back to the year 1913. The priest can be heard giving his fire-and-brimstone sermon in the church, while the village schoolmaster or schoolmistress give lessons in the village schoolroom.
