Promenade de Beauwelz


Pleasant 6km walk, mainly in the Beauwelz wood. The name ‘Beauwelz’ comes from ‘Beau Vallon’ or ‘beau welz’ which means ‘lake’. In the 17th century, they said ‘Biauwez’. This is the name kept by our Walloon dialect. Many small streams snake through the wood. The high point of the route is: the ‘Surgineté’, where there used to be a luxury glassworks, two of whose most beautiful pieces were given to Charles Quint and the future king Philip II, when he travelled through in 1549. Once in the wood, it’s a real breath of fresh air with its pools and its magnificent alpine newts, etc.
