5 tips for outings in the area of the Rivers

Would you like to discover this area of the Namur Province crossed by two important waterways and a lot of small wild rivers? Here are 5 tips for trips…

Andenne

In Andenne you can go shopping but it is also a heritage town. The collegiate church (Collégiale Sainte-Begge) is one of the architectural gems that are worth a detour. The neoclassical collegiate church was built from 1764 in the place where Saint Begga founded a Merovingian abbey in 692. Discover the treasure of the collegiate church, with wonderful pieces of gold or silver work from the 16th tot the 20th centuries.

Namur

Do you love history? There is no shortage of museums in the Namur city. This is one we recommend: "Les Bateliers: les musées archéologique et des arts décoratifs". It was totally redesigned, restored and extended in 2019. It was a shooting location for the French movie "Les Visiteurs 3". Visit this 18th century fine large house with its furniture and decorations in various styles (baroque, Louis XIV).

Hastière

Walking on the bank of the Meuse River in Hastière is a bit like time travelling. Wild banks take turns with former luxury hotels from the time before the war when Hastière was a popular tourist spot. Why not let the charm last with visit the Villa 1900 in Waulsort? Go back in time to the Belle Epoque. Enter this typical villa of the Meuse valley and see how life was then: furniture, decoration and restaurant: nothing has changed in a hundred years and we love that.
