"Oak trees and Meadows" Christinalust by pieter_jan_v

Christinalust Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 14 photos


Thanks to the new VT I went out to explore Christinalust.

One of the new VT features is Destinations In and Around and I just was curious about the names around my hometown. Of the whole list I got from destinations around Hengelo, Christinalust was unknown to me.

Well, it's a beautiful piece of nature south of Twekkelo. Nobody lives there, no hotels, no transportation, no nightlife etc..

Enjoy this typical Twente landscape!


Along the sand road to Christinalust these so called Zouthuisjes are constructed. Inside there are pums for mining the salt layers deep below. The salty water is pumped to the AKZO-factory in Hengelo, where it is purified and processed.

2015 update: A part of the area will be transformed into a nature cemetery in 2016. Thereafter the now close-to-the-public areas will be opened to the general public.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful nature
  • Cons:Just for walkers
  • In a nutshell:Peaceful Twente

    Wonderful bewitched secret garden. There might be a story behind its name.
