The Étang de Virelles is one of the largest wetlands in Wallonia. The lake was actually dug in the 16th century for the needs of the local metal industry. The maximum depth is approximately 2 meters. It is rich in fish and waterbirds. Birds you can see here are Great Reed Warbler, Common Tern, White Stork, Garganey and Spotted Crake.

If you want to make a longer walk on the map you find a nice walking trail of 9,7 km around the lake and through the surroundings. You pass green valleys, wooded slopes and some nice villages.
