EXPERIENCE ALL IN ONE BOAT TRIP!

Boat trip through the boat elevator
of Strépy-Thieu, over the Inclined Plane
of Ronquières and through the locks of Ittre and Lembeek*



In the past, countless locks were used to bridge the height differences between Vlaams-Brabant and the higher Hainaut plateau. Today, these differences in height are bridged with two enormous hydraulic engineering structures: the Inclines Plane of Ronquières and the boat lift of Strépy-Thieu. During this unique day trip you will experience the passage through both 'artworks' up close.

The boat trip starts with the Strépy-Thieu boat lift, with which we bridge a height difference of 73m. We continue on the Center Canal and enjoy the view of the Hainaut plateau.
We make a short stop at Houdeng-Goegnies and walk to the hydraulic boat lift no. 1 on the historical Center Canal (UNESCO world heritage site). The tour then continues on the Charleroi-Brussels canal and we 'track' down the Inclined Plane of Ronquières (68m) in a large water basin.

Passage through the locks of Ittre and Lembeek makes this boat trip complete.

End of the day trip in Halle.
