European Flight Simulator

Fly a real Boeing 737 simulator. European Flight Simulator is an adventure for everybody, even if you have no experience at all. You'll have the opportunity to live an unique and unforgettable experience. After 30 minutes of briefing, you'll take place in the simulator, with a professional pilot by your side to assist you during the flight.

After a 30 minutes briefing to learn the basics of flying, you take place in a "real" cockpit, ready for your first take-off. The instructor is helping you with the secondary commands, give you the right tips to take off, and a bunch of instructions during the flight. After a first landing, I made a second take-off and after a few minutes flight, a barrel (all the alarms of the plane were beeping ! ), followed by another approach of Brussel International. This was really nice ! The instructors are really helping, and giving good advices.
One negative point is the video they suggest you to buy 25€. I bought it and i'm disappointed, as the quality is not that good and you get better view plan from inside the plane (if you have a passenger with you in the plane)

Mala India spa

Reviewed By Caroline D - Gembloux, Belgium

Une vraie bulle de bonheur !
La chambre est magnifique (meubles de style indiens, couleurs chaudes, nombreuses bougies,...). Côté équipement, il y a jaccuzi, sauna, fishpedicure, lit à baldaquin, bar, smart tv avec netflix, salle de douche,...
La terrasse avec piscine est également très jolie (même si vu la météo nous n'en avons pas vraiment profité).
Les repas sont très bons et copieux. En entrée: saint jacques à la crème de poireaux pour lui, carpaccio de boeuf pour moi. En plat: orichiettes aux brocolis et à la chaire de saucisse pour tous les deux. En dessert: moelleux au chocolat pour lui, banana split pour moi. Top !
Le service est parfait et les patrons très sympas.
Nous y retournerons.

Le Bois du Cazier

UNESCO World HeritageTo the South of Charleroi (Belgium), the Bois du Cazier has become a place of life and meetings set against a background of industrial heritage. Situated in the hollow of a setting of greenery, this architectural whole, crowned by two head frames, is encircled by three slagheaps which are ideal places for walks.Scene of a terrible mining disaster, the Bois du Cazier is a mmuseum route devoted to coal, steel and glass includes three sites: the 8th August area, the Industry Museum and the Glass Museum.

We had some time to kill while waiting for a connecting from the airport (CRL) and this was one of the few attractions in the area (not to mention one open on a Sunday). We spent approximately three hours here and enjoyed the experience.
We traveled from the airport using the bus to Charleroi South train station (stop to the extreme left as you exit the airport), and then got a taxi to the museum (were we doing this again, we would have got a taxi straight there). The drive itself isn't fantastic - Charleroi isn't renowned for it's beauty or wealth - but it was quick.
The museum itself is modern and beautiful. It actually consists of three museums: a museum on the industrial age machinery, a museum on glassworks and a museum on the Bois du Cazier mining accident. Each of these museums had numerous permanent exhibits. None of these exhibits will blow you away, but combined they are interesting enough to hold your attention for a few hours. The giant mine elevator shafts are also a great sight on a good day.
The industrial age machinery and mining accident parts of the museum provided info placards in Dutch, French and English (sadly the glassworks museum only provided Dutch and French). In addition, it is possible to get an audio guide for 1€ that provides some context about the museum and site. This audio guide provided in a conversational style (two people talking, with one supposed to be a former miner). I wasn't a fan of this and stopped using it after some time but other people may enjoy it.
Outside of the exhibits, the museum also provides a cafe and the obligatory gift shop. Once again, neither of these will stun you but you may pick up the odd interesting trinket.
The museum is not by itself a reason to visit Charleroi (there aren't many, it seems). However, as the title suggests it is a great option should you be killing time during a layover in Charleroi Airport (or Brussels South, as Ryanair like to refer to it). It is well enough run, sufficiently interesting and (most importantly?) close enough to the airport to warrant a visit.

Musee royal de Mariemont

Reviewed By seolram - Leiden, The Netherlands

Oh my! There's a department with art and objects involving the former castle that stood in this place.
The regional archaeology is nice, it tells the story opf the surroundings, than there's Greece and Rome, Egypt, Near East, Fasr east, religious objects, precious books... it's quite the colletcion, and all for an entrance fee of 1 euro!! (first sunday of the month free admission) For special Exhibitions you pay extra, but wow, where do you get to see all that for such a price?
It's a true gem, dfid not expect to see all this in the middle of Wallonia, not even in a big city.
If you have some time left and the weather is okay: wander through the lovely park

Chateau de Seneffe

Reviewed By MikeWNewport_Uk - Newport, UK

despite knowing the area for many years we had never been to Seneffe castle. We chose it as it was near. The approach was badly signposted by the free car park generous in scale. After that things got really better - the Gardens were human scale and well managed - balanced between upkeep and nature, scattered sculptures here and there helped the walking. The Chateau is modestly price entrance but its two floors are a gem - the rooms are wonderfully restored and a joy and education to visit. The audiovisual supplements just add that touch of panache. We were transposrted back to the era for about 2 hours - this is a wonderful restauration and a well curated display. Not over the top, it achieves each and every one of its aims. A must for a 1/2 day out - afterwards visiti Ecaussines or Ronquiers, all close by

In fact this is the second time I come to photography museum and come away pleased. They always have great Exhibitions and the fact that this building used to be a cloister add to the museum's charm.
