Charleroi was once a prosperous mining town. Those golden days came to an end with the closure of the last coal mine in the 1960s. The city suffered from the collapse of the local economy. The industrial metropolis of yesteryear had to find a new lease of life. That transformation is in full swing. A lot of urban renewal sites, with many innovative and atypical initiatives, are leading to a complete post-industrial metamorphosis. By bicycle, we discover this city’s assets and potential.
