Climb aboard with your children and sail to the unique world of the Voies d'Eau du Hainaut... Congratulations, you've come to the right port!

At the historical Canal du Centre, relax as a family, travel on board a boat and go on a hydraulic lift that dates back to the 19th century.

In Strépy-Thieu, you will climb 73 metres between the two water levels on the largest boat-lift in the world. Or, in Ronquières, you can climb to 100 metres altitude, at the top of the Inclined Plain. Enough to give you an eye-full!
