Namur is located at the point where the river Sambre flows into the Maas. It is also the capital of Wallonia and the province of Namur. This city is known as a student city and therefore has a vibrant city centre, where the trendy eateries and cafes are sprouting like mushrooms. As soon as the first rays of the sun show themselves, the inhabitants enjoy delicious craft beer or a glass of wine on the terrace in one of the picturesque squares.
The Citadel of Namur is the pride of the city and well worth a visit. This Citadel dates back to the medieval era and towers high above the city. On top of the Citadel you will also find a perfumery, restaurant and a playground. There is also the possibility to take walks through this imposing building that lead you past the many gates, stairs and see-through holes.
A city trip to this city is highly recommended when you stay in a holiday home in Namur.
