Tienen is the centre of Belgium's sugar production, with a huge refinery. The town stands on a hill overlooked by the bell tower of the church (St Germanuskerk), at the foot of which the Grande Gette runs. The town is known in particular for its rock festival, Suikerrock (last weekend of July). In the surrounding area, you will appreciate the wealth of the heritage... and the famous Hoegaarden beer.
