Namur to Dinant

Upon leaving Namur, you will be surrounded by the relaxing atmosphere of the Meuse RAVeL. You will pass through the village of Wépion, which is world-famous for its strawberry fields. You will now progressively enter the most beautiful landscape of the valley of the Meuse, with many cliffs and sumptuous sites, such as the famous gardens of Annevoie.

On arriving at Rivière, keep your eyes peeled as you may be able to spot hang gliders, flying down from the top of the Sept Meuses. Shortly after Anhée, you will be able to see the ruins of the Poilvache Castle, overlooking the Meuse from the top of its rocky spur.

When you arrive at Dinant, several hectares of vineyards lay across the side of the valley. At the foot of the citadel, on the quays of the Meuse, the city of the ‘Copères’ (the Dinantais) – derived from the English word ‘copper’ – invites you to taste its famous «couques» or to take a boat trip.

Descend the ramp that leads you onto the RAVeL route on the right bank of the Sambre river. After 100 m you will reach the Meuse RAVeL. Follow the Meuse on its left bank until you reach Dinant.

Specific information regarding long term maintenance work

  • 13/02/17 to 28/12/2018 : Because of the works being done on the pedestrian bridge between Grognon in Namur and the Rue Mazy in Jambes, the RAVeL routes on the left and the right bank of the Meuse, where the Meuse meets with the Sambre, are closed. The City of Namur is in charge of all the redevelopment work of the confluence and the site of Grognon in front of the Walloon Parliament. The main contractor for the construction of the bridge is the Namur Waterways Department of the Public Service of Wallonia. On the left bank, the routes EV5 and W5 are affected by the works. A diversion route via Notre Dame street and Avenue de la Plante (direction from Namur towards Dinant) has been set up (see map opposite). On the right bank, the Meuse cycle route has also been affected. A bypass route has been established via Wasseige Street and Mazy Street (direction from Dinant towards Namur).
