De rivier de Gete vormt de geografische grens met Haspengouw. De Getevallei vormt een prachtig, groen lint met een grote natuurwaarde. In het kader van de verdere ontwikkeling van het wandelaanbod in de Getevallei herstelde de Stad Landen in samenwerking met de aangelande landbouwers en Kasteelhoeve Wange een historisch wandeltraject, met start op de parking van de Kasteelhoeve.
