In Belgium, the landscape of the Meuse is characterised by dramatic rock faces many with castles perched on top. In Dinant, the citadel towers above the distinctive onion dome of its church. Another castle overlooks Namur, the capital of Wallonia, at the confluence of the rivers Meuse and Sambre. Further downstream, you can visit the forts of Huy and Liège, the 'Ville Ardente', with its impressive new train station designed by the famous architect Calatrava. After passing the city of Visé, you have the choice to continue on the east bank or discover Belgian Limburg along the charming west bank of the Meuse.

Combining your bike and public transports in Belgium

By train:

The Belgian national railway company SNCB offers two options: the “bike card”, which allows you to make a single journey, or the “day pass”, which allows you to take your bike on the train during the entire day and throughout the entire country. Both are valid for a bike or a tandem, and optionally a kid’s bike trailer (but the SNCB strongly discourages bringing bikes on the train during rush hours).

If you are coming from or going to the Netherlands, you can take your bike on the train (except on Thalys and Fyra trains) but only outside peak hours (which are on weekdays except in July/August, from 6:30 to 9:00 and 16:30 to 18:00).

As the number of bikes allowed on board varies greatly from one train to another, think of inquiring before embarking if you are traveling in a group. Moreover, your bike must be transported in a special carriage. To know where this carriage will be, it is best to approach the train conductor with your bicycle next to you.

By bus:

Only folding bikes can be carried within the TEC buses in Wallonia.
