Beselare has been known for centuries as a witches’ village where the reputation of the witches extends far beyond the village boundaries. During the 'Witches’ Hiking Trail' you will pass the alleged residences of some of the most important witches of Beselare such as 'Calle Bletters', 'Sefa Bubbels' and 'Tanneken Vanhulle'. Witches who have the ability to fly or to transform themselves into animals, as well as who possess magical abilities and use magical potions. They held secret witch meetings with Sefa as their mistress. Walk in the shoes of the witches of Beselare and be guided by their invisible hand.
