About Namur

Capital of the Walloon region of Belgium, Namur has succeeded in preserving the traces of its rich past. Standing at the confluence of the Sambre and the Meuse rivers, the majestic Citadel overlooks the city. Together, they have passed through many ages.

Discover the heart of Old Namur, the charm of its streets, its terraces, restaurants, museums like the Felicien ROPS Museum, presenting the work of this 19th century artist or the Museum of Ancient Art featuring the Oignies Treasure (13th century silverware).
