From the City of Five Steeples to the City of Hurlus
Get ready for two great days in Picardy Wallonia between Tournai and Mouscron along the
French border. Start the adventure on foot or by bike from Tournai, the City of Five Steeples.
The name was given due to the five towers of its cathedral and is one of the oldest cities in
Belgium. Everywhere you go you’ll find traces of multi-millennial history in its preserved
architecture. In particular, the oldest Belfry in Belgium as well as Notre-Dame Cathedral
and heritage sites from medieval times, both on the UNESCO list.
Another highlight is the Museum of Fine Arts designed by Victor Horta. In this impressive
building, you’ll discover the paintings of great names in art, from the middle ages to the
present day. You then leave Tournai, following the recently re-developed banks of the
River Scheldt in the direction of ‘Mont Saint-Aubert’. Once you’ve made the climb you’ll
be rewarded
with a superb panorama of Tournai and its surrounding countryside.
Then, as you follow the canals again you’ll discover the Domaine and ‘Château de Bourgogne’,
arriving in Mouscron where you can admire its famous ‘Château des Comtes’. Mouscron
was nicknamed the City of Hurlus in reference to a character who lived on crimes of all
kinds in the region during the religious wars in the 16th century. This resulted in the Hurlus
festival which takes place every first weekend of October and is punctuated by trumpets,
drums and folkloric characters.
Picardy Wallonia is full of surprises you won’t expect.
