The Rootmolen’s renovated grain mill has been active from 1284 till 1971. The granary on the first floor has been converted to a sunny apartment with modern lodging comfort. In front of the kitchen’s window is a south-terrace, of which the stairs bring you to the bridge. There you can see the lock, mill-wheel and garden with it’s pond, playground….
The Rootmolen is a landmark in Vliermaalroot, which is a small village of Kortessem. Our region Haspengouw is renown for it’s fruit. We have open space around here. In case you are fond of horses, enjoy the horse-riding center in our street. Many cycling tourists choose our region, because of the variation in the landscape.
In brief : lots of castles, farms, mills, abbeys, churches, museums, nature reserves, typical landscapes, not to forget the regional dishes and beers, educational and cultural possibilities…
We hope you’ll love the region!
