The results have just been communicated. The City of Namur is ranked 7th with 30,102 votes in the European Best Destinations 2020 competition. “It is the City of Colmar which is designated as the best tourist destination of the year 2020. Congratulations to the Colmar team! As Alderman for Tourism Development, I am happy with this great result and hopes that this will make it possible to further strengthen the tourist attractiveness of our beautiful city. Thank you to all the people who voted for Namur and supported our candidacy “, comments Anne Barzin.

Namur came behind Athens (Greece), Tbilisi (Georgia), Vienna (Austria), Cascais (Portugal) and Sibiu (Romania), but ahead of Rijeka (Croatia), Paris (France), Budgoszcz (Poland), Rome (Italy) , Heviz (Hungary), Cork (Ireland), Rochefort-Océan (France) and Menorca (Spain)

Last year, the “European Best Destinations 2019” competition was won by Budapest and Dinant came in 11th place with 17,122 preference votes. An international visibility which has boosted its tourism by 15 to 30% depending on whether there are overnight stays or visitors.

The visibility and highlighting of Namur’s assets on the international scene is precisely the objective set by the alderman for tourism Anne Barzin by registering her city. It was never a question of coming first. We can estimate that with 7th place, Namur was not unworthy.
