Upon inspection of the Citadel, Napoleon labelled it as “Europe’s Termite Mound” due to its extensive network of underground passages. Discover 500m of restored passages with an immersive-guided tour that will take you to the heart of the history of the Citadel’s entrails, through sound and light.

The Citadel of Namur opens onto 80 hectares of green spaces. Within easy reach of the town centre, it offers gorgeous viewpoints over the city and the Meuse valley. Its 7 km of underground tunnels make it one of the biggest fortresses in Europe.

A wide network of underground tunnels

A guided tour will tell the history of these tunnels, the incredible work needed to dig them. Projections, audio effects and 3D animations add to the visit.
