Molignée valley is, without contest, the valley for sports lovers. Best have muscly calves to explore all its splendours. On a railbike or bike, are you ready? Let’s go!
This is an activity that you don’t encounter every day: the Molignée railbikes await you for an extraordinary adventure. Did you say railbikes? Yes, these are the vehicles that circulate on the railway and are generally used to inspect and maintain it. Here, their tourist version is on offer to you: a sort of bike on rails with pedals. And then? Climb on as a group and... reveal the strength of your nice pegs. There are several trails available, for durations between 1 and 2 hours approximately up to a half-day, which will take you to either the ruins of Montaigle Castle or the old Maredsous station, while crossing one of the most beautiful villages in Wallonia: Sosoye.
Between castles and abbeys
Seasoned cyclists know this: Molignée valley also has some of the most beautiful RAVeL trails! Along the ruins of fortified castles or walls of the Maredsous and Maredret abbeys, they offer landscapes steeped in history. Between the paving stones of narrow streets or the banks of the Meuse river, the Mediaeval past seems to be reborn from the ashes: Crèvecoeur fortress, the ruins of Poilvache and Montaigle, the villages of Sosoye and Falaën - the spectacle is really worth a detour. It’s soon time for a refreshing break... Why not enjoy some delicious cheese and a little mousse?
