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.

This creation centre, unrivalled in Northern Europe, explains the different phases in the creation of a perfume.

Belfry of Namur
Belfry of Namur


In the 14th century, the Belfry of Namur was one the collegiate church's
towers. A fire destroyed it in 1745, and the Tour Saint-Jacques,
originally built as part of the city wall in 1388, was chosen as the new belfry. It is the
oldest of the three towers of the medieval fortifications.
20 metres high, the Tour Saint-Jacques is listed by UNESCO as a
stunning example of the 14th century military architecture.
