Chemin de terre et de Sambre


A stone’s throw from the French border, enjoy this gem of the Haute Sambre and its magnificent rural landscapes, the Hantes and the Thure rivers, its woodlands and its rich and remarkable monuments. The Church of Saint-Georges, a semi-classical building with a Roman choir dating to the 12th century, contains beautifully distinctive features, such as the Bonne-Espérance coat of arms, a stone dated 1716, an image of Christ carved into oak, and more. The Erquelinnes military cemetery has a large memorial lawn for WWI soldiers, including 66 soldiers from England, 4 from France and 11 from Germany. At the end of the route, you will follow the Sambre river. A harbour basin is found right before the border. The ambiance of the pleasure boats waiting for their next outing invite you to unwind.
