Gileppe Dam Tower

This route takes you from the Hertogenwald forest to the Gileppe dam, which you cross before reaching the panoramic tower. Climb to its summit to enjoy the exceptional view. The end of the route being unpaved and rather hilly, we suggest you to not make the complete loop and go back on your steps.

Walk in the Bois de la Marchandise in Seraing
Walk in the Bois de la Marchandise in Seraing

Especially known for its industrial landscapes, the neighbouring city of Liège is much greener than it seems. The Bois de la Marchandise d'Arras in particular is criss-crossed with lovely paths. To make it easier, do not go down to the brook, but stay on the cycling trail.

Walk in Lanaye: From bank to bank - The Montagne Saint-Pierre

Beyond the Meuse and the Albert Canal, at the gateway to the Montagne Saint-Pierre, this short, easy 3 km walk invites you to discover the village of Lanaye on the Meuse. Take advantage of this walk to visit the Maison de la Montagne Saint-Pierre and, in season (from May to September and depending on the weather), to cross the national border via the Bac Cramignon river ferry. Incidentally, the village of Eijsden in the Netherlands is also worthwhile.
Unfortunately, this hike is not accessible for people with reduced mobility. In dry periods, it can be done with a pram.
