Ronquières Inclined Plane and "One Boat, one Life" Exhibition
- MAPS: Google Maps
"A boat, a life". With the help of infra-red headphones, follow the barge in its daily world (three-dimensional scenes, modern audiovisual techniques, giant wall-screens, automata, etc.). See the barges enter and leave the locks. Watch a film explaining the inclined plane. From the top of the tower, enjoy an exceptional panoramic view, with an audio-guide about the "Petites Ardennes" region.
