Guided tours at the heart of Belgium's largest dam and Skywalk, a unique 107 metre-high panorama. Stretching over the Provinces of Hainaut and Namur.
The Eau d'Heure dam, the only one where you can visit the inside, offers you a chance to discover the origins and history of the site, thanks to a gigantic model. The tour then takes you on a 450 metre walk through the dam's galleries, 20m below ground.
The guided tour includes the Skywalk, a panoramic viewpoint from 107 metres up, looking down on the dam's drop. The Skywalk gives you a breathtaking view of the lakes of Plate Taille, Eau d'Heure and Falemprise.
Enjoy a host of activities in one place:
- Amphibus the Red Crocodile and the Crocodile Café
- Laser Game
- Aqua Golf by the Red Crocodile
- Croco Express, the miniature "hop-on, hop-off" train.
