Wood of Lauzelle 

The wood of Lauzelle has developed three waymarked walks with didactic panels and games. The circuit Fauna and Flora (2.9 km) approaches some aspects of animal and plant life of the wood. The circuit Forest (3.7 km) focuses on the evolution of the forest in the present ecological context and the role it plays in our daily life. Following the circuit Humid Hollow (1 km) you will discover the flora, fauna and the ecosystem of this particular world.

Artworks in the city

A sleeping beauty, a hitchhiker, a child, a hand, a naked body, a cross, a portico, a bike wheel, a stone garden, primitive forms, mural paintings... just a few of the sights to see.

These sometimes curious depictions can be found throughout the four corners of the city and can be enjoyed by passersby.

A feast for the eyes that can be extended, thanks to our small guide: “Art in the city, Promenades in Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve”.

Four public art itineraries in the territory of Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve bring you from the urban center to the science parks, passing through some of greener areas of town. A hundred works of art, selected for their leisure, are ready to be discovered on foot, by bike, by car, alone or with friends !

The remarkable trees of Louvain-la-Neuve

About one hundred remarkable trees were indexed in the city of Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve and most are located on the university site.

Some were planted for scientific reasons when the city was being created, like the red oriental maple near the Sainte-Barbe court, or this Byzance hazelnut tree planted in 1975 at Avenue Georges Lemaître.
