The Western or Little Dender springs near Leuze-en-Hainaut at an altitude of about 60 to 70 meters above sea level.

The length of the Western Dender up to Ath is 22 kilometers, the Eastern Dender is 39 km long. From that confluence the river is called the Dender proper.

The Dender is navigable to Aalst for small ships up to 600 ton and further upstream for ships up to 350 ton.
