4.3/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
Dating all the way back to the Roman era, Citadelle (Citadel), also known as "Castle of Namur," serves as one of the largest fortresses in Europe. Originally a protective space for military postings, the castle today is a tourist attraction and occasionally is rented out for events. Walk through the premises of the castle and explore the original rugged structure of the fortress walls. Next, go through the underground passageways, or "The Termite Nest of Europe," below the castle's grounds. Walking through the outdoor gardens is a great way to end your tour and gain some magnificent views of the surrounding city. If you don't want to walk the grounds, sign up for a Segway tour with a guide. Plan your visit to Citadelle (Citadel) and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Namur trip itinerary builder.

  • Probably the most notorious landmark of Namur. A former military fortress, it is now peaceful place full of stairs, bridges, stairs and forest paths. Go there to take a hike, discover each cranny and nook or simply enjoy a picnic. The place is also perfect for all-terrain biking. You can also observe the historical military architecture, with barracks, arsenals, gates and fortifications. You will also be able to enjoy a stunning vista of Namur and surroundings. Make sure to follow the safety information.
