The Campine (Dutch: Kempen) is a natural region situated chiefly in north-eastern Belgium which once consisted mainly of extensive moors, tracts of sandy heath, and wetlands. It encompasses the east of Antwerp province (with Turnhout as the most important city) and a part of Limburg province in Belgium (a former coal-producing region), as well as areas of the Dutch province of Noord-Brabant.

Today the Campine is becoming a popular destination for tourists in search of a quiet and relaxing weekend. Old farms have been transformed into bed-and-breakfast hotels, the restaurant and café business is very active, and an extensive cycle touring network has come into existence over the past few years.
