What a breath of fresh air (no pun intended), My boys and I were hooked after the first episode. The action sequences are great, and the lighthearted humor is refreshing...

Interesting exhibition especially for kids with interactive visit (videos on screen, animations, games...). Not too expensive and free for Tienen inhabitants. There's a shop with many local specialties (jam, beers,alcohol...) and a coffee (open soon) beside to the museum.

Professor Zucchero, the virtual guide, has got an unique gift making it possible for people to become...More
This educational/family tour takes around +/-90 mins, so if you have the time take the time to enjoy it. Through it you will learn about why TIenen is called the Sugar City and how the sugar is made from sugarbeets and other forms. It is...More
