Strépy-Thieu Boat Lift



A truly remarkable feat of engineering and an unforgettable sight in Mons is the Strepy-Thieu Boat Lift.

It is the tallest in the world and essentially uses giant containers of water to raise boats from one level to the next.

Visitors to the lift can watch from outdoors, or pay for the privilege of seeing the lift up close as well as the engine room, an indoor café and a half an hour video about how the lift works and how it was made.
