The church in Lembeek

Lembeek is a village with a population of 7 256 in the municipality of Halle, Belgium.


It is situated to the south-west of the city of Halle, close to the 'language border' - the boundary between the Flemish Region and Wallonia. Former Castle of Lembeek was demolished by request of the Colruyt family.

The Boon Brewery is based in Lembeek and there is a theory that the famous lambic ale took its name from Lembeek. The village has a railway station, and is next to the Brussels-Charleroi Canal.
