Het Zwin

Top attraction for nature lovers.Life between the continent and sea.

The founder- Mr Lippens himself

"Het Zwin" - first wild life reservation area in Belgium (1952). It was founded by the director of the Company "Het Zoute"- mr Leon lippens himself and actually called "Mr Ecologist avant la lettre"
His son, actual mayor of Knokke is better known as mr.Coolbox - but this is another story in Belgian politics.
You will find the statue of the founder at the entrance of the reservation

Stork and gooses

Storks and gooses in a unique wild life reservation area at the Belgian coast. My grandchild will be born next month (March 2005). Will it be found under the the gooseberry bush??
