The Boekenbergpark is located in Deurne-Zuid (Antwerp) on the Eksterlaar, between the Unitaslaan and the Van Baurscheitlaan. The park is 10 hectares in size and was laid out around 1800 around a country house in rococo style as a giant kitsch décor of follies. The ruin tower and the cave complex with ice cellar have been preserved and house the Natural History Museum Boekenberg and a speleological foundation. Today, the park is maintained as a mini-forest, which means that nature in this park can take its course within certain boundaries because only necessary management takes place.

It is an orientated cruciform basilica, which was protected in its entirety as a monument in 1983. It used to be the main church of the deanery of Berchem.

Sight 6: Tank

Show sight on map

The Cromwell tank, officially Tank, Cruiser, Mk VIII, Cromwell (A27M), was one of the series of cruiser tanks fielded by Britain in the Second World War. Named after the English Civil War–era military leader Oliver Cromwell, the Cromwell was the first tank put into service by the British to combine high speed from a powerful, reliable engine and reasonable armour. The intended dual-purpose high-velocity gun could not be fitted in the turret, so a medium-velocity dual-purpose gun was fitted instead. Further development of the Cromwell combined with a high-velocity gun led to the Comet tank.
