Visiting just one town or city, no matter how popular, can only ever give you a glimpse into the wider textures and qualities of a region. So schedule in some time to visit Flemish Region's other natural and man-made attractions. If you have a vehicle, visit Turnhout, which is 2 miles (3 kilometers) away from Oud-Turnhout. In Turnhout, you can enjoy the Castle of the Dukes of Brabant and Taxandria Museum. A trip to Westerlo is another worthwhile option It's 16 miles (26 kilometers) from Oud-Turnhout and is home to the Market Square and Tongerlo Abbey.
While you are staying in Oud-Turnhout, why not visit Antwerp. Approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the west, this regional city is where you'll find The Zuiderkroon, Provincial Museum of Photography (Provinciaal Museum voor Fotografie) and St. Pauluskerk. City Park (Stadspark), Middelheim Park and Plantin Moretus Museum are some more attractions that should be on everyone's itinerary.
You'll be sad to bid "Au revoir / À bientôt" (farewell) to this interesting spot.
