One of the most impressive heritage sites in Belgium, the Citadel of Namur boasts of a rich 2,000-year-old history. It was originally the residence of the Counts of Namur in the Middle Ages.
King Leopold II used the fortress as his holiday home. In the 1930s, it served as a protected space for the Fortified Position of Namur command post. Today, the Citadel is a popular event hall as well as a destination for historical tours.
The Citadel affords gorgeous views of the river and the city. The ride up is also an experience in itself. Inside, guests can explore the 500m restored passages in an immersive guided tour paired with 3D animation, sound effects, and projections. The tunnels open up to 80 hectares of green, open space which also serve as the perfect platforms to view the city and the Meuse Valleys.Places nearby:
