Situated between the valley of the Kerkebeek and the sandy back of Sint-Andries, the provincial domain is very diverse. The Tillegembos encloses a medieval moated castle, the Tillegem castle, which has undergone many changes over the years. At the end of the 80's the castle was thoroughly restored by the province.
The area around the castle is extremely varied. From the car park we walk through deciduous and coniferous forests & grazing, hay and recreational meadows. The great diversity of this varied walking area also translates into a great diversity of fauna & flora. It is sometimes said: "The Tillegembos sings all year round", this is mainly due to the numerous songbirds that the forest is home to. But the larger birds of prey, such as the kestrel, tree falcon, sparrowhawk and buzzard, are also frequent guests. At this time of the year, with a bit of luck, you can admire the forest anemones in the low-lying part of the forest. Are you also curious about the flute concert of the day? Or do you hope to be able to admire the blossoming of the forest anemones? Or are you just an all-round nature lover? There are various cycling and walking routes possible, make sure you wear sturdy footwear.
