  • Galler chocolates: Exceeds its reputation

    by szpilling Written May 29, 2012

    The most amazing range of delicious chocolates. A range of diabetic chocolates as well. Unfortunately the tasting room no longer exists :-( But still the best chocolates I've ever tasted, and I've tasted a few!!!! however they were better at ambient tempertures when the full flavour came out, than cold from my fridge at home after a hot journey home.

    What to buy: The curry flavour was subtle and unusual but the caramel options were to die for.

    What to pay: a bit pricy but worth it

    Not sure...: Find this wacky shop

    by steedappeal Written Nov 15, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a store out of a Monty Python sketch. It is run by two adorable, old ladies. They seem to specialize in outerwear, especially working class-style trousers in those fantastic shades of bleu. Unfortunately, they did not have my size.

    What to buy: Work-related attire

    What to pay: Not much

    Small shops in the city centre: Gorgeous continental Christmas presents

    by annase Updated Oct 7, 2007

    I spent an afternoon in Namur around Halloween in 2005. The town is not too far away from Brussels. If you wanted to spend a day there, it is very easy to get to, since it takes only 30-45min by train to get there. I absolutely loved the little boutiques they had in the city. It was only November, but I was looking for some continental Christmas presents for the children of my British friends. I did almost all of my Christmas shopping there and then because I liked the stuff so much :-)

    What to buy: Toys, gifts

    What to pay: Less than in the UK

    The local market.: Fresh and local...

    Namur has quit a large market. Every saturday
    morning it covers almost half of the city center.
    You can't miss it.

    Have a closer look at the dried meat sellers.
    Also some merchants who sell straight from the
    farm are highly recommended as well as
    bread baked in a wood oven.

    Go for it!

    E. de Hucorne: Not to be missed..

    It is a small shop loaded with chocolates and
    sweets. One little box was asking for attention.
    ' Les 'BIETRUMé' de Namur'
    I didn't knew what it was and I never heard
    about them either. STRANGE!

    They ware the best caramels I ever had.
    They come in two different sorts in one box.
    A bit one the expensive side...but a must if
    you are a sweet tooth like I am.

    Paté.: Nowhere it tastes better.

    by belgianchocolate Written Jan 30, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    You can buy paté at the supermarket , but I think
    you'll never find them better then in the 'ardennes'.
    They got a tradition preparing these.

    What are they?
    It is meat from ducks , rabbitts , game mixed
    with liver and spices and baked in the oven.
    How to eat it?
    When it is creamy people smear it on a
    sandwish. I like it best served as an appetizer
    with a salad and dressing and some
    onion jam or strawberry jelly...not a large
    portion. It is quit heavy.


    This picture was taken at a butchery
    in the 'rue des Brasseurs'
    near rue 'Du pont'

    Ceramique de Namur: A local tradition.

    by belgianchocolate Written Jan 30, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    Pottery , tiles , ....
    If you want to take a souvenir or something
    typical from Namur go and have a look at
    'ceramique de Namur'

    For 50 years Odette Dijeux has made all
    kinds of objects for home.
    A little tile with 'le petit grise' or a local figure
    only cost 4 euro....

    You can also buy some religuous objects.
    It's not my thing , but maybe you'll like it.

    a street

    Although Namur's a small town, you can find several streets you can go shopping, such as Rue de Fer (Iron Str), Rue de l'Ange (Angel's Str), Rue de Bruxelles (Brussels' Str) and Rue Emile Cuvelier.
