The Bokrijk Domain is a 550-hectare complex situated between Genk and Hasselt. It comprises a vast Open Air Museum and an Adventure Park.

The Open Air Museum is the reconstruction of a 19th-century countryside village. It has over 100 houses, a church, a windmill, and artisans wearing historical garments and working with the same tools as they would have 150 years ago.

The Bokrijik Adventure Park is the largest open-air playground in Flanders.

The domain also hosts vast public gardens, an important botanical garden (arboretum), and miles of walking routes and bicycle lanes.


Opening Hours & Admission

The domain itself is accessible for free all year round. The Open Air Museum is open every day (except Mondays) from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm between April and September.

Admission is 10 € for adults, 3 € for children and students aged 3 to 26 years old, and free under 3 years old.
