Address :
Rue Emile Cuvelier 68, 5000 Namur, Belgique

At the confluence of the Meuse and Sambre rivers lies a two-thousand-year-old city, that is also the capital of the Walloon region.  Ravishing Namur awaits you with open arms - you can’t fail to fall under its charm: between museums, gastronomy, culture and historical sites, it has everything to please you!

Namur is above all a land of history because its citadel has always drawn envy. On your way, you’ll come across the vestiges of Mediaeval times, buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries, churches with various influences, including St Aubin’s Cathedral, or ‘Belles Mosanes’, villas from the 20th century... But let’s go back for a moment to its citadel, standing on a large rocky outcrop. This exceptional heritage was among other things, the residence of the Counts of Namur in the Middle Ages, and you can explore it on guided tours, including through its underground passages. Not to mention that Namur Citadel is also a green setting with a tourist train that will take you to admire the many viewpoints overlooking the city and the region, like the panorama from the magnificent Tortoise by Jan Fabre, a huge sculpture above the city.

A vertiginous descent

To reach the charming old Namur, why not try the funicular that will take you to the entrance of the pedestrian area with its pretty shops? From there, you’ll immerse yourselves in the heart of the city with its many treasures. Let yourselves get lost and open your eyes: everything is delightful! As the regional capital, Namur is the seat of the Walloon parliament and Walloon government, and, above all, an important place of culture, with international events such as the International French Film Festival or the KIKK Festival and dozens of museums that are worth a detour (including the must-see museum of the provocative Namurian painter Félicien Rops). On your way from one to the other, you can also admire the many works of Street Art, or climb aboard a Tuk-Tuk, in which you’ll hear the interesting commentary of your guide.
