Namur proves that size isn’t everything. It is a stylish, charming and politically important city in the Wallonia region of Belgium.
The old-town area of Namur is very charming provided that you are willing to delve deeper than its slightly tough looking exterior.
The undeniable highlight of the city however is without question its citadel.
Until relatively recent times, the citadel was the mightiest and most impressive of its kind in Europe.
In addition to sight-seeing and calm river walks, the city has plenty of food, drink and pampering to keep you charmed.
Lets explore the best things to do in Namur:
1. Visit the Citadel of Namur
The Citadel of Namur is immediately recognisable, it is an impressive looking fortress building originally built in the Roman era.
The citadel has since been rebuilt several times and what you can see now dates back more to the 19th Century than the 9th.
The walk up to the citadels ramparts is steep but well worth it for the commanding views they offer.
The main gates lock at 6:30pm so be sure to have your visit wrapped up by then.
