Boat trip over the Inclined Plane of Ronquières
AND through the boat elevator of Strépy-Thieu*

From Ronquières

This guided boat tour starts at the foot of the Inclined Plane of Ronquières, one of the most remarkable hydraulic engineering 'artworks' in Europe.
We 'trace' in a large water basin over the Inclined Plane and thus bridge a height difference of 68m.

We sail along Seneffe, where the Charleroi-Brussels canal meets the new Center Canal and further along Houdeng-Goegnies.

We continue on the Centrum Canal, which was constructed as a kind of aqueduct high above the Hainaut landscape. We reach the renowned ship lift of Strépy-Thieu. After a descent of 73m with the 'lift' we continue to the quay of Thieu, where we disembark.
We take a short walk to the hydraulic lift no. 4, located on the Historic Center Canal and UNESCO World Heritage.

Then return with our bus to Ronquières OR on your own initiative.
