Located on the Charleroi-Bruxelles canal, the Ronquières inclined plane compensates a 68 m drop: a rather unique feature.
To understand how it works, stop by its Visitor Centre and try its panoramic lift, a glass bridge overlooking the area. On Sundays, you can even go across the inclined plane by boat.
An immersive trail: a boat, a life
Put your infrared helmet on and discover a boatman’s daily life through 3D scenes, audio visual techniques, giant screening walls and even automated figures.
You will get the opportunity to watch a more in-depth movie then walk to the top of the tower to enjoy stunning views over the “Little Ardenne”
You can also take a relaxing cruise toward the Ittre lock.
Departure times: noon, 2.30 pm, 4.40 pm
- combine the visit of the inclined plane and the boat cruise
