The wine hiking day in Weingarten - the focus here is not just on hiking. ;-)
Various routes are offered, guided or free-walking through the vineyards. In between there are wine stands and different wines.
We decided on the big group, with all the wine stands.

Change of plan - actually we wanted to leave Mechelen today. But since we had an accident (car hit us on the bike path) and suffered a few bruises, we decided to shorten today's tour and take the train to Antwerp.
If anyone is interested in the planned stage, I have included the relevant link:
