Presentation of the guided tour of the Plate Taille Dam

The guided tour of the Plate Taille Dam (the largest dam in Belgium) will take you on a thrilling journey into the heart of the dam's gallery. Indeed, after an introduction around a giant model representing the 1800 hectares of the Eau d'Heure Lakes site, you will be taken by one of our guides into the only gallery of a dam that can be visited today in Belgium. Explanations adapted to all will be given in order to better understand the essential role of this gallery.


During more or less 400 meters, you will feel in full immersion in this unusual place; when you come out of it, you will feel very small between the tower culminating at 107 meters high and the Dam which will overhang you of 50 meters.


From this point, a short lift ride will take you to the engine room overlooking 4 powerful reversible pump turbines where you will have the opportunity to discover how they are used, particularly for electricity production. The visit will resume on the 5th floor, a real skywalk offering an unparalleled view of the lakes with as a highlight ... Its glass part giving you this feeling and surrealist impression of being in the void. The return journey will be made along the Dam via the outside.


Et pour finir, la visite se terminera dans l’auditorium où vous pourrez découvrir en images l’origine du barrage via un petit film technique.


Duration of the guided tour: Approximately 1 hour and a half.
