The terrils of Genk still remind us of the former mining industry in this part of the country. They are the cathedrals of Genk. On the foundations of the Winterslag mine site, C-mine was built, now the cultural heart of the city.

Genk has a lot to offer besides its mine heritage. A mixture of different cultures gives this city its 'couleur locale'. Eating out in Genk is taking a journey around the world.

Genk might not be old, it is authentic and it hides surprises behind every corner.

Vizit Genk is a collaboration with Stad Genk.
