Tourism

The most important curiosity of Oostmalle is the Renesse Castle. The Chapel of Our Lady of Perpetual Help (Dutch: Onze-Lieve-Vrouw van Bijstand) at the Herentalsebaan, was built by Leonard Pierre Joseph du Bus de Gisignies in 1837. In 1930 a Lourdes cave was added to the chapel (inaugurated on 7 May 1933), and in 1934 a Stations of the Cross was added in remembrance of King Albert I of Belgium (sculptor was Simon Goossens). The Chapel of Saint Anthony (Dutch: Sint-Antoniuskapel) in the hamlet Salphen dates from 1626.

Oostmalle Airfield is located south on the territory of Oostmalle, close to the hamlet of Salphen, and the forest of Blommerschot. This airfield is currently used for recreational purposes (Gliding). There was some talk of using this airfield as an alternative for the Airport in Deurne should it have to close.

Each year the international Sluitingsprijs Oostmalle is organised in Oostmalle, which is part of the Cyclo-cross Gazet van Antwerpen. It marks the end of the Cyclo-cross season.
