The historic centre of the city of Namur is best visited on foot, by meandering like the Namur mascot: at a snail's pace. Walking through Namur, you discover, among others, the Félicien Rops museum, but you can also stop at the terrace of one of the many cafés or let yourself be tempted by a spot of shopping.


The emblematic Citadel, a Namur heritage treasure offers you unique panoramic views of the city and the Meuse valley. To appreciate the picturesque landscapes, there's no better way than on the bateaux-mouches sightseeing boats which give a river cruise touch to your urban wanderings.
