Your visit to Terhills starts here

Terhills covers an area of ​​approximately 356 ha in Dilsen-Stokkem and Maasmechelen, on the edge of Belgium’s only National Park.

Shaped by its past as an industrial mining and gravel digging site, the environment today is characterized by lush fauna and flora, huge watercourses and unique sights from the ‘terrils’ (now-green spoil tips).

Terhills, a green oasis full of diversity – from nature to adventure!
