What more pleasurable than endless strolls or bicycle rides along one of the world’s most attractive canals? The towpaths of the canal in the Historic Centre offer magnificent landscapes where you can watch the countryside of the Central Region unfold in the shade of hundreds of centuries-old chestnut trees. The excursion’s just crazier on the water! Step aboard a barge operated by Les Voies d’Eau du Hainaut and get on the Strépy-Thieu funicular boat lift! This is the biggest boat lift in the world. The Ronquières inclined plane will astound you as well! It allows boats to slide on a slope more than 1 kilometre long!
