Probably best in spring and summer, the citadelle is a wonderful historic point of namur. U can reach it by bus or car and it offers amazing views all around. Don't forget to check out the chateau de namur for a nice lunch, dinner or a simple drink.

Namur was a random overnight stop on a long journey but what a lovely find. So much so, we've been back twice now. This fortress sits at the confluence of the two rivers and overlooks the charming old town. To be honest it's so high that it also overlooks the newer parts of town.

It was an easy 30 minute walk from the Ibis Hotel. This place was amazing. We spent about 5 hours on top. We took the train tour and the tunnel tour. Both tours provided English narration. The history is fascinating. The views from the walk and the tours are great. This attraction was the highlight of our Belgium trip.

What a fantastic place to visit steeped with History and fantastic views, the walk to the top is long but plenty of places to take a slight rest and look at the views, we went to the visitors centre and took the tour of the tunnels and went on history walk all at a reasonable cost but recommend you get...

Only €14 for a visit to the Citadel, a ride down the cablecar and a boattrip on the Meuse river (45 mins.) and then back up by cablecar, to return to your vehicle. Lovely sharp priced package deal.

Great for visitors that prefer not to hike so much as you are able to drive all the way to the top and you can stroll around the citadelle and have a brilliant view of the city.

Didn't pay a cent for this visit, just walk all the way up and enjoy the (really beautiful) view.. Just don't forget to bring some water with you, specially around summer. We also did a picnic and it was really nice.
