This small theatre, well-known among lovers of the performing arts in Namur for its warm, human atmosphere, is two kilometres from the gîte, a little outside the city centre. It lives up to its name well, as the resident drama company overflows with enthusiasm and the ability to communicate.
The Théâtre de Namur is one of the gems of the Walloon capital. Its unique architectural style creates a fascinating exterior, but this blend of Classical, Neoclassical and Baroque is found inside, as well. You sense the magic as soon as you set foot in this place dedicated to cultural dissemination and action as well as to creation. The programme here is excellent.
This cinema of art and experimentation, recently fully renovated and integrated into the city centre, delights cinema lovers with its quality programme and films shown in the original version. Those who love popcorn and fizzy drinks in the cinema need to find somewhere else to go - they are banned!
Félicien Rops, a famous Namur artist, was a painter, sketcher, illustrator and engraver. This museum, housed in a mansion at the heart of the pedestrian area, traces the history of his life and encounters, and displays his creations. It also welcomes several temporary exhibitions a year. Essential visiting for art lovers!
Since the aim is to present a different side of Namur, this original and unique museum based on pioneering IT collections in Belgium is well worth a visit. Many individual guided tours are organised.
This symbol of the Walloon capital overlooking the entire city is definitely not to be missed! The top of the citadel offers a breathtaking view over Namur and the surrounding area, including the confluence of the Sambre and the Meuse rivers.
Visits to the subterranean passages and the historical centre as well as a great many walks and cycle rides are possible.
The site also contains several statues, such as Jan Fabre’s famous giant tortoise.
