Wonderful walk to get excercise and at the same time learn a lot about our past . Great parfumeur and nice stop to get regional food. People from the city are very nice and open to other culture...the hard of Belgium is there...recommendation: must see

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.

Wear the right shoes, pack some water and some snacks in your backpack, take a camera, and you will enjoy it. The view from above is really nice. It's well preserved. Namur in general is one of the best attractions in Belgium.

Fantastic views which make it clear... More

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.
