River Dijle of Leuven

De Dijle is a river that flows through the Belgian provinces of Walloon Brabant, Flemish Brabant and Antwerp. It is part of the Scheldt river basin. The area to the east of Brussels, through which the Dyle passes, is called the Dijleland.
The most important places along the Dyle are, with the stream, Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve, Wavre, Leuven, Werchter and Mechelen. The river has a length of 86 kilometers.
This river originates in Houtain-le-Val, a part of the Walloon Brabant Genappe (Genappe). Initially the Dijle flows fairly easily in a north-easterly direction. To the south of Leuven, the Thyle, the Train, the Nethen, the Laan and IJse end up in the Dyle; in Leuven itself also the Food. In Werchter, the Demer ends up in the Dyle, which then makes a turn to the west. In Mechelen, the Dyle is split into a Binnendijle and a diversion line. In the end, the Dijle merged with the Nete into the Rupel shortly after the Zenne flows into its course.
I hope that you enjoy it
