We are honoured and delighted to host the 15th edition of the European Senior Badminton Championships in Belgium.

The official accommodation is Holiday Park Molenheide in Houthalen-Helchteren. Transport from the official accommodation, Molenheide Park, to the velodrome (location of the competition hall) and back will be provided.

For those who prefer to stay in a hotel in the surrounding area, several hotels in Hasselt will be recommended (see below).

Holiday Park Molenheide

Logo molenheide

Located in the green heart of the Houthalen-Helchteren area in Limburg, bungalow park Molenheide guarantees you a relaxing holiday in the midst of nature. The numerous indoor attractions, sport and recreational facilities, drinking and eating venues, the animation team and the bungalows – all contribute to a memorable holiday. What makes bungalow park Molenheide unique is that it uses green energy from a biogas plant.

You can choose a bungalow for 4, 6, 8 or 10 people from 4 types of bungalows, with varying levels of luxury. Breakfast is an option, but not a must, as every bungalow has a fully equipped kitchen. A buffet breakfast will be served in the main building for those who choose the breakfast option (20€/pp). Your bungalow is never more than five minutes away from the main building.

The discounted rates for Park Molenheide are only valid until 25 May 2024.


For years Hasselt has been renowned as the jenever city and now it has also made a name as a fashion and shopping city. Truly the ‘Capital of (Good) Taste’! A city you can see, feel, smell and taste, with surprisingly cosy streets, terraces and many excellent shops. A city for real bon vivants.
