Arrive by train at Châtelet station. Get on your bike. Join the edge of the Sambre and cross the river on an old railway bridge towards the Maison de la Poterie in Bouffioulx.

Imagine a château, a march dedicated to Saint-Roch in the Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse region (among the 15 adopted as masterpieces of oral and intangible heritage of humanity). You are in Acoz, a village in the commune of Gerpinnes whose name (alone!)  is now linked to the Belgian royal family.

Through meadows and undergrowth, you will reach the centre of Gerpinnes along the Line 138 RAVeL, brought back to life to the great delight of walkers.
