Namur

From the top of the Citadel to the banks of the Sambre, Namur offers a wide range of possibilities. It is the most charming city in Wallonia. Here we do not see the raw past of the miners, as in other Walloon cities. The region  Namuroise has a rich history of Romans and duchies. You can discover today's Namur during a street art  or food tour. Also visit the impressive Citadel, this well-known fortress is located in 80 hectares of green area near the city center and offers a beautiful view of the city and the Meuse valley. With 7 km of underground passages, the Citadel was one of the largest fortresses in Europe.

Namur  wants to get rid of its sleeping image, and it succeeds thanks to its special heritage, the historical and modern hotspots and its atmospheric  streets and cozy squares. Romance is never far away here either!
