Discover remarkable art works at the heart of the Parc des Canaux et Châteaux, which stretches from Thieu to Ronquières, via Louvière and Godarville.
Come and see:
- The funicular lift in Strépy-Thieu, a giant made of steel and concrete. Visitors can go to the very top, a 100 m above the water.
- The hydraulic lifts, impressive masterpieces reminding visitors of the industrial revolution in Belgium
- The inclined planed in Ronquières, complete with a Visitor Centre, panoramic lift and glass bridge overlooking the site
These sites, some historical, others more contemporary, sparkled with museums and fascinating trails are well worth the detour. Coming with the family? Make sure you stop by the Claire-Fontaine estate.
