The last decades our village Mol has become a leading municipality in the Campine, with a colourfull touristic, cultural, sportminded and social-economic appeal.
Each year over one million people visit Mol for shopping or for spending their free time biking in Nature, near by the Lake District. Others come to concerts in the Cultural Center, “ ’t Getouw ”
or visit the “Jakob Smits Museum” or the abbey of Postel.
In Summertime you feel yourself in a big garden in Mol. Beautifull red and pink flowers colour the Shoppingstreets and the border of the river “Nete”.
Why should you visit Mol, beside for shopping? Mol is famous for digging white sand. In the past it was used for producing glass for bottles, then it was used for glass panels for windows and cars. Now they use the sand for microships and the display of your mobilephone is maid with white sand from Mol.
Because of the digging of this sand, Mol got a Lake District, more then 860 ha wide.
This Lake District gives us the opportunity to have hundreds of kilometres for walking and biking, place to swim, sail, surf and water- skiing.
Last year a brand new marina “Port Aventura” was created in Mol
. It is situated near by the lake “Zilvermeer”. Here you can stay at a wonderfull trailer and caravan park.
