Getting There & Away
Three hourly trains link to Diest (€4, 15 minutes). Direct services to Antwerp run via Brussels Airport so it's usually quicker to change in Aarschot. An hourly Genk-bound train coming from Ghent, Brussels and Leuven stops in Hasselt and continues 10 minutes to Bokrijk station, 500m south of Bokrijk Openluchtmuseum's southern entrance (though for that park, hourly bus 1 from Hasselt is often more convenient; Monday to Saturday only).
A large area of the city centre is pedestrianised. Free bicycle hire is available behind the attractive Stadhuis (old city hall).
