I walked to the top and came back by the cable car 🚡 and it is was worth it. At the middle of the way I visited the museum, where I learned the history of the citadel, and I went on the guided tour of the underground tunnels, that you must not miss. At the top there was also an exhibition and a rose garden. The view of the city was amazing.

The Citadel at Namur is a fascinating historical construction that contains hundreds of years of history on one site. The excellent museum and visitor centre provides an in-depth history of the phases that the Citadel's construction underwent. Some of the maps, models and military artefacts are superb. The guides are excellent and can provide the tours in different languages to suit all visitors. The tour which takes the visitor beneath the citadel is not to be missed and well worth the hour or so that the journey takes to complete; the tunnels are spacious and one should not feel claustraphobic, so don't be put off by the thought of being underground. The key moments in the citadel's history are portrayed at the very places the incidents took place.

I was there for a short stop, we walked there, took several pictures and enjoyed the view. It was good for a short stop. I recommend here.

Interesting historical landmark. Huge history there, as is in the whole town of Namur. The town has been very important over the centuries and has taken a beating for it quite often. Go visit, have a look.

I haven't studied history of Namur before, but looks like this Citadelle have played important role in the whole area development. Massive construction skills and well guarded area with many nice little spots.

Climbing to the citadel is healthy. From the top the view is stunning. Several pleasant places to have a drink or several.

We did a tour of the Citadel underground. Our tour guide, Nicolas, was exceptional!! He was very knowledgeable and the info he gave us was very accessible, interesting and not overwhelming…
I highly recommend this tour! Bring a sweater as it is about 12-13 degrees Celsius underground!

We arrived too late in the evening to tour inside the citadel, but it was still worth the stop for the exploration available of the exterior and the amazing views from the top. We spent about an hour wandering around, looking at the views, and being impressed by the huge golden turtle. (Not sure what its meaning is, but it was fun to look at!) The citadel is very large and you can walk a lot; we took plenty of great photos looking out over the citadel itself, the city, and the confluence of the rivers (Meuse and Sambre).

A must if in Namur as it's a great bit of history and offers some amazing views. There is a cable car, which we didn't take, but it's nice to walk up too if you are able. It's perfect to explore and we stayed an hour or so just wandering about for free, although there are also other events and paying exhibits too, so you can make much more of it if you have more time to kill.
