Access

The workshop will take place at the Grenier of the Arsenal at the University of Namur, Rue Bruno 11, 5000 Namur, Belgium. You can reach the University campus either by train, by plane, by car or by bus.

By Train

As the University campus is no more than 10' on foot from the main station, the train is certainly the best way to get to our campus.

Namur is served by quite a lot of train lines. Just take a look at the map of the Belgian Railways. The main lines come from Brussels, Liège, Tournai, Koln, Luxemburg and Paris. Trains commute between Brussels and Namur twice an hour. Same from Liège, Charleroi and Mons. Taxis are also available in front of the station, in case you have to reach an hotel or a place outside the city center.

By Plane

If you arrive at Brussels International Airport (Zaventem), you can easily reach the train station after exiting the customs : take a rolling staircase at your left and go down to the train station. Take any train, change at Brussels North for a train to Namur.

Belgium's other international airport, Brussels-South, is located in Charleroi, at 40 km/25 miles from Brussels city and operates low cost airlines. Flight schedules for departures and arrivals are available at www.charleroi-airport.com. In the airport you can buy a ticket which covers a journey in a TEC bus (from the airport to Charleroi-Sud train station) and a train journey (from Charleroi-Sud to any station in Belgium). You can find the full itinerary (bus + train) on http://www.belgianrail.be/en/Default.aspx.

By Car

The Arsenal has its own but limited parking spaces for the guests. Other university parkings are only for staff members. One of them (located rue Henri Lemaître) is accessible if you have a guest card. Otherwise you will have to park in the city (neither free nor cheap). For those interested, the city of Namur has opened a park and ride area along the river Meuse. You can leave your car over there and take a bus shuttle to the center of the city.

By Bus

The regional public transport authority TEC has a web site that allows you to gather information about timetables and fares.
