Within a radius of 1km are located:
The Chapel of St. Eucherius was built in tuff in the 12th century, dedicated to Eucherius of Orléans. It is a place of pilgrimage in honor of Saint Bertilia, one of the Holy Three Sisters.
The Castle of Brustem was built in the 12th century to protect the city of Brustem from the city of Sint-Truiden.
Brustem then belonged to the County of Loon, while Sint-Truiden was part of the Prince-Bishopric of Metz and the Holy Roman Empire.
The ruin was neglected for a long time, but now appears to be the only remaining keep to be appreciated. There are therefore plans to beautify the site.
