    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.

    The Visitors' Centre is also where you can get information about some of the wonderful trails such as La Boucle de la Plate Taille - 15.4km and the Boucle de l'Eau d'Heure - 20.2km.
