Hainaut is a less well-known region but has a wide variety of natural beauty, industrial heritage and architectural treasures. You can easily alternate your walks with a cultural trip, for example with a boat trip on the Canal du Centre along the ship lifts that are included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Hainaut is one of the few regions in the world that is listed no less than 19 times on the World Heritage List of UNESCO for both material and immaterial heritage.
