Senne walks and café - Themed walks

Senne walks and café - Themed walks
© Coordination Senne

Each month, a guided tour on foot, by bike or by boat allows you to discover one of the Senne basin's watercourses. In Brussels, 08/08 to 18/12/13.

During the walk, the guide draws the participants' attention to the watercourse, its history, nature, and the threats and opportunities surrounding it.

An external speaker gives the participants insights into topical themes linked to the Senne: floods, quality, purification, its role in the landscape...

Whenever possible, the walk is followed by a drink, allowing participants the chance to have a friendly discussion.

A wide variety of visits and walks
