    The Voies d'Eau du Hainaut - all ages will marvel at water's power!


    Fun for children


    • Children from 3 to 6 love sitting near the captain during the boat ride and watching the ducks and birds diving into the water.


    • Children from 6 to 12 love watching the locks and lifts in action and discovering the life of a boatman behind the scenes, the models and the games.


    • Teenagers love understanding how the lifts and inclined plane work, discovering the history of the canals and admiring the view from the top of Strépy-Thieu and from Ronquières tower. And finally, watching films on the construction and working of these structures.


    To finish the visit


    Sit and watch the barges while eating your picnic or hire bikes to ride along the towpaths.
