Frequently asked questions

  • What are the consequences of coronavirus in Lommel?

    The evolution and consequences of the coronavirus are closely monitored by all services of the City of Lommel. All information about changes in the tourist offer can be found here.

    Furthermore, the federal public service Public Health posts the most important information on www.info-coronavirus.be. The measures listed below are helpful to prevent the spread of flu viruses, coronaviruses or any other viruses.

    Simple measures that can be taken to prevent the spread:

    • Wash your hands regularly
    • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze
    • Avoid close contact with persons who have the symptoms of a respiratory disease (e.g. coughing and sneezing)
  • Where can I find the Sahara?

    The large sandy plain of the Lommel Sahara resembles a desert in miniature. But the region also has clear blue lakes, areas of heather and fragrant pine and deciduous forests. Here you can hike through cool play areas, the land-artworks by Will Beckers, the pedestrian bridge and the famous watchtower!
