- Sport and relaxation
- Walking or hiking
This lovely walk will take you through wetlands by the Haine, a nature site quite unexpected in this rather industrial region.
From the park of the Château de Boussu, you will easily get to this large nature reserve. Continue along the water, by the Saubim.
After enjoying peaceful landscapes, you will discover the more austere mining heap ones at the Grand Hornu site. The RAVel along the former Warquignies train line used to lead all the carts coming from the mines.
A little before Boussu, a small detour on the left will take you to Brasserie Desevaux.
