    I loved moving to Brussels. But after a while I felt homesick. On InterNations I met a bunch of people from the US. That helped a lot.

Living in Namur

The bourgeois city of Namur in Belgium stands at the confluence of the rivers Sambre and Meuse in southern Belgium, southeast of Brussels. Overlooked by its citadel, high on a rocky outpost, the city’s medieval center, with its narrow streets and squares, offers expats living in Namur a pleasant and safe environment. There are many street cafés, restaurants and bars to relax in. Namur is the capital of Wallonia, and although French is the dominant language, Walloon is also spoken and English usually understood. The four universities and higher education establishments in Namur attract international students to the city, and with many tourists visiting Namur, the city has a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Attractions in Namur include the belfry of the Italianate Cathedral of St Aubin, which is listed as one of the UNESCO Belfries of Belgium and France World Heritage Sites, and the Citadel above Namur, with its defensive walls, is also open to the public and a must see for expats living in Namur. The city furthermore hosts several annual events, including the Namur International Festival of French-Speaking Films, the “Nam‘in’Jazz” Festival and the Verdur Rock Festival. Expatriates living in Namur may register as members of InterNations, the online global community for expats, and network on the many discussion groups and forums to make contact with fellow expatriates for business and social purposes. Members of InterNations are leading lights in their chosen professions, and offer friendship and support to others of a similar standing.

Moving to Namur

The SNCB Belgian rail network has Namur at the junction of the Brussels-Luxembourg City, and Lille-Leige lines, whilst the cross-channel Eurostar connects with Namur via the efficient Thalys rail system. So whatever your preferred form of transport for moving to Namur, you shouldn’t have any problems getting there. And local bus services operate in Namur and around the city’s outskirts. Relocating to a new country is nevertheless a demanding process, and often specific problems arise which need to be resolved. As a member of InterNations, you can enquire online amongst trusted expats who will have had experience of moving to Belgium or even Namur itself. For general information relating to the relocation process, InterNations Expat Magazine contains a wealth of information on a wide range of topics.

    You can really get lost in the "capital of Europe" - InterNations helped me to get settled and to make a lot of expat friends.
