Forget all about the stress that goes with driving (carbon footprint, parking options, filling up…): here is an amazing itinerary to discover the region from Waterloo to La Louvière without a car.

The idea

This itinerary starts and finishes at a railway station. Between the two, stage-stations which you can walk or cycle to. The pace is up to you – add a few cultural visits along the way, make it a few days adventure…

The itinerary

The adventure starts 20 km South of Brussels, at the edge of the Forêt de Soignes (Waterloo). Next is Nivelles, a small town which fascinating historical cultural always wows visitors.

The trail then takes you to La Louvière, the capital of la Région du Centre. Fancy going a little further? Binche is sure to enchant you.
