4 Historical Boat lifts Aug 20, 2017
When you visit the big boat lift at Strépy-Thieu, don't forget to also take a look at the historical lifts of the Canal du Centre. Those 4 lifts are a UNESCO world heritage site. You can do a boat tour starting at Strépy-Thieu, but since I went there with some photo-friends we decided the tour would take up too much of our precious photography time. I did take a flyer with the prizes of the tours (for 2017 the boat tour and visit of a machine room for adults €19,25) If you just want to take a look (or in my case a lot of pictures) it's totally free. The four 16-metre lifts are pretty close together (about 6km from No.1 to No.4) but if you don't have the time to visit all you best go to No.3, you can visit the machine room there and if you take the time to walk up the stairs beside l'Ascenseur you can see No.2 in the distance (or walk the 500 mtrs to No.2)
