Walk from Tiège to Walhain

Credit : MTBW

This trip will not fail to arouse your curiosity because it takes the old road from Nivelles to Tirlemont, passing right by the Tiège windmill and the Geographical Centre of Belgium! A nice little walk in the heart of Walhain. There are several places where there is no pavement, or just a very narrow one, so be careful!

Nil-Saint-Martin Castle

Mentioned for the first time in 1404, this castle was the centre of a seigniory. The main courtyard opens onto the street through a porch-dovecote connected to two corner towers. Parallel to the entrance pavilion stands the main building, beautifully restored during the 1980s. The eastern wing ends in a relatively massive tower, the remains of the old keep of the feudal castle. The remainder of the building, bearing the date 1661 on the façade anchors, results from radical conversion work to create a pleasure palace undertaken by Béthune family. Private.

It comprises a huge quadrilateral dating largely from the 18th century (1740?), but substantially altered in the 19th and 20th centuries. Private.

Tiège Mill.

The best preserved mill in Walloon Brabant rises proudly on this windswept plateau with its rotating cap and its sails. Built in 1834 by the Thienpont family, it was to remain in operation until 1946 and was listed as a historical monument the same year. All the elements of the machinery have been preserved and since restored. Private. Listed.

Centre géographique de la Belgique

Did you know that the geographical centre of Belgium is in Walloon Brabant, and more specifically in Walhain? In the locality of Tiège, in the valley of the Nil river, a metallic structure has been erected at this precise point. It was built by an architect from the municipality and includes various symbols that are unique to Belgium:- the base represents the Earth’s crust,- the triangle is a simplified diagram of Belgium,- the three pylons symbolise the three regions.Before the Treaty of Versailles in 1919, the centre of Belgium was in Ittre as the three cantons in the east were not yet part of the kingdom.
