About Namur

Namur is a modest city, but its position at the meeting of two great rivers, the Meuse and Sambre, has raised its status both for trade and military significance. And the city’s main sight is the vast old military citadel - one of Europe’s mightiest fortresses. The best places to stay in Namur are in the pretty old town just below the fortress and along the banks of the two rivers.

If your idea of the best place to stay requires a certain level of history and drama you’ll not be disappointed. The old town has plenty of great choices and is also full of cafes and restaurants and is largely pedestrianised. As well as the citadel, its sprawling outbuildings and underground network of tunnels and escape routes, Namur also has a nice art museum and an archaeological museum.

What not to miss:

  • Citadelle de Namur, the mighty fortress at the centre of the town.
  • Église St-Loup, the glorious church in Namur
  • Explore the fascinating museums featuring local artwork from the region

The Gurus best places to stay in Namur make the most of great hotels in town and out of town.
