Holidays to Hainaut
The province of Hainaut is in the southwest of Belgium and is one of the five provinces in Wallonia. Thanks to the location of the Hainaut Plateau and a turbulent history, there's more than enough culture and nature to make your holiday unforgettable.
Hainaut is a green province with lots of woods, hills and lakes. With over 500 km of signposted walks nature lovers will immediately feel at home. How about a brisk walk through the 'Boot of Hainaut’ (Lars van Henegouwen), the most southern part of the province? Chimay is a great base for walking. Here you’ll find an impressive castle and can visit Notre-Dame de Scourmont Abbey where the famous Chimay Trappist beer is brewed. If you’re a history lover, you should visit the area around Moeskroen, where you will find more than 20 British cemeteries – a poignant reminder of WWI. Visit Tournai which was founded in Roman times and is home to Belfort, a beautiful building from the 12th century. Go into Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekathedraal and admire the beautiful statues and gorgeous stained glass windows.
Hainaut is in Wallonia, the French-speaking part of Belgium. Some parts of the province are sparsely populated and not always accessible by public transport. The best way to explore the region, especially if you want to do it at your leisure, is to rent a car. On Expedia’s website you can book accommodation and hire a car.
