Why should I visit Tienen?

Tienen is a town with a very long history, dating back to 10.500 B.C., in the Mesolithicum. Many Roman artifacts were found during excavations (like in the three Tumuli), many of whom you can see in the town’s museum. During the Medieval times, Tienen was one of the 7 important Brabantian cities.

Today Tienen is a cozy provincial town where you can find anything you need: you can go shopping in the many shops, enjoy fine dining and drinks, and thanks to the many splendid monuments and fun activities you will certainly never get bored here.

In short, Tienen is an old but vibrant town!
