Nestled between the Sambre and the Meuse, Namur is an ideal destination for tourism, full of character and able to charm you in the blink of an eye.
The city of Namur
Whether you are passing through for a few hours or staying for longer, make the most of it to discover our beautiful city of Namur. Its range of attractions and rich history guarantee an unforgettable visit.
A true symbol of the city, the Citadel of Namur stands proudly at the confluence of the two rivers. A heritage and historical site not to be missed by any visitor. Take a breathtaking panoramic view from the esplanade, and enjoy a walk or guided tour, or take part in one of the many events it hosts throughout the year. The cherry on top, the Circus Casino Resort is located at the bottom of the rock. You can choose to climb to the top of the rock in less than 15 minutes on foot, or to go to the city center to take the cable car.
A journey along the RAVeL
If you prefer walking on solid ground, opt for soft mobility. The quays and the RAVeL are reserved for pedestrians. On foot, on a bike, or on a horse, discover or rediscover the city at your own pace. Don’t have your bike with you? No problem, you can hire one from Li Bia Velo or ProVelo, for example. You can also hire an electric bike or get on board a rickshaw for an even more relaxing journey.
Shopping a stone’s throw from the Resort
With more than 800 businesses, markets and flea markets, the city center will delight both curious shoppers and avid shopping fans. The city of Namur has a varied commercial offer, made up of big brands as well as small independent shops and local businesses. A few steps from the Circus Casino Resort, the pedestrian zone is the perfect and unique place to discover boutiques and restaurants.

Fans of motor sports aren’t left out as every year Namur hosts the Rallye de Wallonie, an unmissable event for all car enthusiasts. For those who would like to get behind the wheel for a dose of adrenaline, go to the Jules Tacheny Mettet circuit. Motocross fans will be able to ride on the legendary Citadel circuit. And if you want some height, go for a parachute jump from the Namur airdrome.
