Around the oldest Protestant church in Flanders, a quiet and serene churchyard recalls the eventful history of this Protestant community that was established here in 1564.
Near the Protestant church is the museum Abraham Hans, since 1989 housed in the former Protestant primary school of Horebeke . The museum offers an overview of more than four centuries of Protestantism in and around Horebeke. The popular writer Abraham Hans was born in the teacher's house on February 12, 1882 . He died in 1939 .

The Tissenhove Mill

This mill is located on a hill 105 metres above sea level and was built there in 1768. A guided group visit of “this monument” is a must.
Because of its exceptional location and panorama, the Germans used this mill in WWII as a lookout . In favourable weather conditions you can see the towers of Deinze and Ghent.
