The most beautiful 19th hole in Belgium

De Kristalijn, boasting one Michelin star, is the domain of chef Koen Somers. This hypermodern restaurant is
housed in an elegantly minimalistic concrete and glass building. The clean lines continue inside, harmonising with the warm and luxurious decor.
The huge windows make for wonderful views, and on summer days they open completely, transforming the restaurant into an exclusive terrace - and the open kitchen adds extra atmosphere.
De Kristalijn is Hotel Stiemerheide’s culinary hotspot. This cottage-style hotel is strategically located at the 18th hole of Spiegelven Golf Club, which is situated on the grounds of the hotel. The golf course surrounds a lake known to locals as ‘the mirror of heaven’. A refurbishment of the rooms and suites will be completed in 2020.
Each hole has a character of its own, and the unforgettably picturesque views in this hilly natural landscape of woods, heathland and water are so varied that you’ll never tire of playing on this challenging course.

Restaurant Kristalijn

Hotel Stiemerheide has two restaurants, both culinary gems. The Michelin-starred Restaurant Kristalijn is housed in an architectural masterpiece with views of the surrounding countryside and golf course. The clean lines make an elegant contrast with the cottage style of Stiemerheide. From the open kitchen, chef Koen Somers serves dishes to match the seasons.

The walls of Restaurant Corneille feature works by the Belgian-Dutch artist and leading light of the COBRA movement from whom the restaurant takes its name. Chef Sander Roos serves refined French and Belgian cuisine.

Whether you’re in need of rest and relaxation and you’re happiest in your walking boots, or you’re looking for an active weekend break with outstanding cuisine, Hotel Stiemerheide has something for everyone. Golfers can stroll from the hotel directly onto the 18-hole course of Spiegelven Golf Club.

Cyclist and walkers will be in their element in the Hoge Kempen National Park, which is virtually on the doorstep. Nearby Kattevennen is one of the six gateways to this landscape of heath and woodland. For an unusual walking experience, try the three-kilometre Lieteberg barefoot path – no shoes allowed.

The city of Genk is well worth a visit. Explore C-Mine, a former coalmine complex with a host of creative activities both above and below ground. In the shadow of C-Mine is Vennestraat, ‘the street of the senses’, with restaurants, bars and boutiques. Or visit the free Emile van Doren Museum, which tells the story of Genk in the days when it was a 19th-century artists’ village, through the eyes of Emile van Doren, a painter of the local landscape.
