    The Pass, it also happens outside!



    A witness to the site’s mining past, the “Mont Ostène” is a “terril” (slag heap) 70m tall. Feel free to explore its ecosystem and enjoy the stunning view it boasts of the region.

    The Pass has been awarded the “Bienvenue à vélo” (Bikes welcome) label, and is intersected by line 98C of the RAVeL network, a former railway line that used to connect the region’s coalmines, from Frameries to Hornu. So why not hop on your bike to come and visit the site?
