The municipality was officially acknowledged as a Green holiday site in 1970, and not without reason. Indeed, the extensive nature areas, woods and lakes remain fully intact. The castlepark Meylandt is part of the cycleroutenetwork Limburgse Kempen and a stop over for some of the themewalks through the valley of the stream Mangelbeek.
The minetip has been turned into an area of greenery. Large parts of it can be visited on foot.
