Don’t entertain any fears: for the citadel is no longer in military use. So you can actually go inside: it is open to the public. You don’t have to limit yourself to viewing it from outside. Like many of the other older cities in Belgium, Namur has a belfry, and you should really make an effort to visit it. The Belfry, of course, doesn’t stand in isolation.
It is, as a matter of fact, part of Namur’s Saint Auburn cathedral, which is an architectural masterpiece and an attraction in its own right.
If you are an art lover, you may seriously consider paying a visit to the Couvent des Soeurs de Notre Dame.
Here, you will have a chance to see, among other things, the famed works of Hugo d’Oignies.
Another sight to behold near Namur is the Maredsous Abbey.
If you find it this particular abbey fascinating, chances are that that you will also be fascinated by the Annevoie Castle, which is not so far off.
You should also take time off your busy sightseeing schedule while in Namur to sample the local cuisine, and chances are that you will never quite forget the delicacy of it. For more details, please ask your Hotel in Namur.
