THE RAILBIKES OF THE MOLIGNÉE
In the middle of nature
Our different rail tracks allow you to enjoy the natural beauty of the scenic valley of the Molignée. They offer views on the river, the winding road and the ever changing landscape.
N.B .: These tours are always back and forth on one and the same rail, hence the need for breaks at the turnarounds.
Warnant - Falaën
From Warnant to Falaën and back you cross two tunnels and several bridges while pedaling through a mostly wooded area.
On the way you will discover an old quarry and, from their best angle; the Ruins of Montaigle classified as major heritage of Wallonia.
The ride up and back will take you in between 90 and 120 minutes including the short break at the turnaround station Falaën.
Falaën - Maredsous
From Falaën to Maredsous, your railbike takes you through Sosoye, one of the most beautiful villages in Wallonia, where you have an ideal view on its limestone plateau.
A little further on you can observe different rock formations carved by the railroad builders.
At the end of the track a 20 minute walk takes you to the Abbey where you can find some refreshment(s) or discover the monastery during approx 1 hour. Then, at the hour indicated by staff at the departure, you go back to your railbike for the return ride to Falaën.
