The city of Namur and its citadel are inevitably a big attraction when it comes to this region, but it has many other treasures within its borders.
An impregnable citadel located atop the city, this building, which is anchored on a rocky outcrop, dazzles arrivals to Namur, where it can be seen from every corner of the city. This exceptional heritage site has kept the traces of each period and invites you to discover two thousand years of urban and military history. These traces of the past are told through a dynamic and educational staging and a visit to discover more than 500 meters of restored galleries.
But it would be a shame to limit your visit of the city to simply discovering the Citadel. Its very pleasant city center, with its old buildings and charming squares, its numerous museums, and its cruises will allow you to discover Namur and the Meuse valley differently.
