The Meuse and Sambre river cross the province, where they meet in the Provincial capital. Here they form the borders between two regions:
Hesbaye The Hesbaye - which lies to the north of the Meuse - is a region of empty hills that stretches across four Belgian provinces, to Liège in the east and to Leuven in the north.
Condroz And the Condroz - a region of rocky hills and deep valleys that forms the transition between the Ardennes and the lower lying regions -to the south of the Meuse, roughly between Liège and Namur.
Ardennes The Ardennes - which stretch over 3 Walloon provinces and a part of France - occupy the southern portion of the province, and are one of this part of Europe's wildest regions, and an excelent destination for outdoor activities.
Namur (Dutch: Namen) — The provincial capital and capital of Wallonia, Namur is a classy town of around a 100,000 inhabitants, that boasts a tidy, well preserved old centre and an impressive citadel at the confluence of the Sambre and Meuse rivers.
Dinant — An old town in a stunning natural setting on the Meuse river, Dinant is a popular spot for adventure sports such as canoeing and rock-climbing. Dinant is best visited in winter, and is best known for being the place where Adolphe Sax invented the saxophone.
