The Ourthe Valley is one of Wallonia’s many gems… The train lines that crosses it is considered one of the most beautiful in Europe, no less! Well worth combining with walks or bike rides.

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

Ville de départ de cet itinéraire : Charleroi. Autrefois décriée, cette ville a réussi une reconversion décalée. Bénéficiant d’un riche passé industriel, c’est aujourd’hui une destination tendance !

Thuin, quant à elle, doit son charme aux traces de son passé médiéval : son beffroi classé au patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO, ses ruelles et ses jardins suspendus reconnus au patrimoine exceptionnel de Wallonie...

Enfin, dernière étape de ce périple, la région agricole et forestière d'Erquelinnes. Elle offre une diversité de paysages et une surprenante richesse architecturale !
