The Roman aqueduct - Tongeren

Domein Beukenberg/ Bos Beukenberg is the final piece and the only remaining of a one-kilometre-long aqueduct, which carried water to the city during the Roman period. It is an impressive artificial earthen wall. The top of the wall was presumably the location of a covered wooden gutter through which the water flowed. The present-day wooded ridge offers an opportunity to enjoy a pleasant walk.

This is a protected archaeological site!

Opt for the ‘Hidden Treasures Beukenberg’ hiking trail (3.5 km or 7 km) starting in Mulkerweg
(More info).


The aqueduct is open to the public. Information is provided by means of information panels. Group visits with a guide is also an option.
