Route description

Start your off ride with a visit to the Château de Seneffe and its Silverware museum. On arriving at this sumptuous estate, you will have the chance to discover a host of treasures: 54 acres of park and gardens that will delight nature lovers and walkers, as well as the largest silverware museum in Belgium.

Then head for the historic Charleroi-Brussels Canal; its lush green banks are the perfect spot for taking a break and unwinding. Nextfollow the trail to the Château Fort d’Ecaussinnes-Lalaing – a major Walloon heritage site. This fortified castle sits on a rocky bluff above the village that grew around it. It also houses a museum that brings together the collections assembled by Adrien van der Bruch: Hainaut porcelain, 17th and 18th century furniture and more.

Fancy a snack en route ? Along your ride towards the castle, you could stop off at the Fromagerie Chevlait and sample the dairy’s delicious handmade goat’s cheese.
