Three special villages
Duizel, Wintelre, Knegsel
Knegsel dates back to 1281, but there are so many burial mounds in the area that people must have lived here in prehistoric times. The village was heavily looted by French troops in the 17th century, with the result that the village was rebuilt a little more to the east. Duizel used to have a castle, because the surroundings of the village are beautifully fit with nature’s beauty. On the 24th of June the Sint Janstrossen, bouquets of flowers, are dedicated as protection against lightning and diseases. Wintelre has achieved two world records thanks to the efforts of almost all residents: in the Guinness Book of Records they are listed with the longest washing line and the longest balloon line in the world.
