Travel Back in Time: The Canal du Center Boat Lifts

Immerse yourself in the world of the Canal du Centre's hydraulic elevators, engineering marvels designed at the beginning of the 20th century, still in operation. These elevators, unique in the world, were built to respond to a major economic challenge: transporting goods, particularly coal, over a height difference of 66 meters. Now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, they are a living testimony to human ingenuity in the face of the technical challenges of their time. The Canal du Center itself, with its ancillary structures, constitutes an industrial landscape where time seems to have stood still, inviting a fascinating exploration of Belgium's industrial history. Visiting these elevators is not only about educating yourself about the evolution of hydraulic techniques, but also immersing yourself in a crucial part of Belgian cultural heritage, providing an experience that is both educational and picturesque.

Make the most of your visit to the historic elevators by cycling directly from our guest room. 'Au Petit Dragon' offers you bikes to explore the Ravel along the canal, allowing you to appreciate the beauty of Walloon industrial heritage and landscapes in an immersive experience.

In addition, this month of April, an exceptional and unique ride is offered to you on the Historic Center canal. Embark at Strépy-Thieu and cross the largest boat lift in Europe. Then, by small train, discover the hydraulic elevators classified by UNESCO, before visiting the engine room of elevator no. 3 to unlock its secrets. The ride ends with a return trip on a little train along the canal, offering an experience rich in discoveries and history.

Let 'Au Petit Dragon' be your guide in this captivating adventure, where the industrial past mixes with the beauty of the Walloon landscapes.
