You can't talk about Namur without mentioning its famous citadel! Proudly overlooking the city from a height of over 100 m, it certainly takes advantage of the landscape and the gentle music of the Meuse waters. From there, you follow an immersive guided tour with 3D animations, projections and sound effects.
The starting point is the old Terra Nova barracks. The screens and images tell you the story of the city from its beginnings to the present day. Then, why not take a seat on board the tourist train to travel around the ramparts and fortifications of this place steeped in history? During your visit, there’s a succession of views that leave you admiring the beauty of the valley and the city, including the one from the huge, famous tortoise sculpture by Jan Fabre. And if you're with children, a guided commentary has been specially designed for them. You just need to ask.
A land of adventures
Would you like to add a spot of fun to your visit? An exploratory walk awaits you every day and it’s free. Your eagle eyes will make out the photographic clues that will enable you to find the next destination on your journey. Unless you’d prefer to set off on your own to explore this vast land of adventures? For example, the recreational park Reine Fabiola with its play equipment and attractions: swings, balancing toys, slide tower, hanging bridge, mini-golf, giant chess and electric cars? And to end on this cheerful note, there’s nothing like a cable car ride to Maurice Servais square to then reach the pretty pedestrianised area of the city...
