Cycle route 'Vaartketsersroute'View route Order
A large part of this route follows the canals. It lies mostly in the region of Dessel but passes the canal banks of Mol. In the olden days, the barges were pulled by way of human and horse labour. The sound of the horses' hooves on the cobbles on the bank was called 'ketsen' This is why the route is called the 'Vaartketsers' route.
