Everything moves at a slower pace in Namur – even the accent. The city, which stands on the Meuse, bears the tell-tale signs of the countryside, in its terrain and its accents. Yet it is a city in its own right, too – a proud, vibrant place with a party atmosphere, cosy bars and its own folklore. And it’s the capital of our region, Wallonia!

Our watersideyouth hostel is housed in a former typical villa beneath the towering Citadel of Namur. The hostel is a vast complex, boasting its own internal courtyard and a large garden area for entertainment and activities.

Namur really lives up to its name as the capital of Wallonia. There’s plenty of cultural offers, as well as all the activities you’d expect in a city of this size. The Meuse and Sambre, which run through the city, are criss-crossed by a multitude of bridges, while the banks are the ideal place to stroll and enjoy the moment. The hostel is the ideal base for the Festival of Wallonia, Namur in May, Esperanzah!, the International Festival of French-Speaking Film (FIFF), and much more besides. And the stunning Casino de Namur is just a stone’s throw away.
