A. Boat trip through the land of Bruegel

Bruegel loved Brussels and the rural Zenne valley. He may have lived in the Hoogstraat in Brussels near the Hallepoort, but in the Zenne valley the painter found his inspiration. While sailing on the canal, the guide will tell the story of the city and the region. You will experience the passage in the locks of Molenbeek, Anderlecht, Ruisbroek, Beersel and Halle and disembark in Halle.

On Friday: 9:00 - 13:00 (from Vilvoorde) or 10:00 - 13:00 (from Brussels)

B. Boat trip through the green Zenne valley to Ronquières

Away from the city, sailing through the undulating hilly landscape, you will enjoy tranquility and natural landscapes. Beautiful rural trip with passage in the locks of Lembeek and Ittre. We sail to the foot of Ronquières.

On Friday: 13:30 - 17:00 (from Halle)

C. Boat trip from the southern green outskirts to the heart of Brussels

Almost every canal municipality is building new living and working projects near the water. We sail past warehouses converted into lofts, past industrial buildings completely converted into a hotel, museum, new residential or recreational location. The waterfront has become the "place to be".

On Monday (other days on request): 13:00 - 17:00 (from Halle or Sint-Pieters-Leeuw).

Suggestion: Combine your boat tour with a visit to the Coloma Rose Garden.

In the heart of Sint-Pieters-Leeuw, about 10 km from Brussels, you can find the Colomaparc: a domain of some 15 hectares with the most colorful place in the region: the Coloma Rose Garden.

This garden shows the rose in all its facets, with both native wild roses and cultivated roses from over sea. You will find completely new rose varieties and roses from the Middle Ages.

Every year, more than 3000 different varieties of roses bloom from all over the world. The garden was laid out in four lots: the red and white garden, the Flemish garden, the old rose garden and finally the International garden. This beautiful rose garden is one of the largest and most important in Europe and a wonderful place to discover.
