I went running in this park twice, as I was staying in a nearby hotel. Nice walk with some lakes, on the spot of old coal mines. Once also 3 roes crossed my way, very nice

We took one of the longer routes and hiked for about 4 hours (we're not very experienced hikers). It was wonderful to be here in winter, when not many people were visiting and everything was calm and quiet. Great views from the terrils (hills) and...More

This is a nature park with mountains resulting from old mining activities which is very good for a walk. Entrance is 3 euros for a day. The park is right next to a fancy hotel, a cinema and a large outdoor shopping centre.

Connecterra is a great place to go out and get some exercise. There are trails all around, some with fairly steep inclines. Once at the top you'll get a great view of the lakes and hills. There is a small restaurant near the entrance that...More
