A visit to Strépy-Thieu funicular lift, the biggest boat lift in the world, is packed full of surprises!

There's a huge engine room, a wonderful panoramic view of the site as a whole and its surrounding region, a film about the building and operation of the lift enlivened by animated models and interactive games, an exhibition of fossils found during the excavations...

Also, there's the interactive tour "Pays des Génies", where you can experience the greatest moments in the history of Belgian creativity in such diverse fields as art, music, painting, sports or comic strips in the company of famous Belgians.

Visit the boat lift and you can go up it in a boat!
