Create an itinerary including Citadelle (Citadel)
Dating all the way back to the Roman era, Citadelle (Citadel), also known as "Castle of Namur," serves as one of the largest fortresses in Europe. Originally a protective space for military postings, the castle today is a tourist attraction and occasionally is rented out for events. Walk through the premises of the castle and explore the original rugged structure of the fortress walls. Next, go through the underground passageways, or "The Termite Nest of Europe," below the castle's grounds. Walking through the outdoor gardens is a great way to end your tour and gain some magnificent views of the surrounding city. If you don't want to walk the grounds, sign up for a Segway tour with a guide. Put Citadelle (Citadel) into our Namur attractions planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Namur.

  • A great place to walk around and experience different atmospheres, time periods, viewpoints, tunnels, nature, etc, all in one place. Some of the paid activities are worth it (visits of the underground galleries or eating at a terrace on top of the citadel), but otherwise there is plenty of things to do for free ! From strolling families to one-day tourists or even joggers, I would recommend it to everyone.
  • A must see place in Namur, visit of underground tunnels absolutely recommended. Parking possibility in front of Tera Nova Centre. Hospitable staff at ticket office. 👍👍👍
