JULY 6, PASSAGE OF THE TOUR OF FRANCE: PARKING OF THE MEMORIAL INACCESSIBLE TO VEHICLES BETWEEN 11:30 AM AND 4:30 pm

This year, on the occasion of the centenary of the Yellow Jersey and the 50th anniversary of Eddy Merckx’s first victory, the Tour de France is once again visiting Brussels and our country.

Its sense of hospitality, its cultural and gastronomic monuments, its legends and its great number of cyclists who have made the History of the Tour de France, make it an ideal place to launch its 106th edition.

On Saturday July 6, the Tour de France will be exceptionally passing at the foot of the Lion’s Mound!

 

 

Because of security reasons for the safety of the riders as well as that of the spectators of the Tour, the access to the Memorial will be somewhat modified compared to an ordinary day.

Vehicles won’t be able to access the Memorial and its parking between 11:30 am and 4:30 pm.
