Discover the majestic La Plate Taille, Belgium's largest lake, during this 16.3 km hiking trail. This lake, the largest lake in Belgium at 3.74 km², is part of the Lakes of Eau d'Heure, created in the 1970s. The lake can be up to 43 meters deep at the highest water level.
La Plate Taille dam plays a crucial role in electricity production. When green energy sources do not produce enough, the dam opens its sluices to generate electricity. At night, when electricity consumption is low, the machines pump water back into the lake.
This walking tour guides you completely around this important reservoir. Those who enjoy spending time along the water will find this a perfect hike.
