Cable Car Namur, Belgium | Wheelchair Accessible Review

The Cable Car in Namur, Belgium, also known as Téléphérique de la Citadelle de Namur, offers a wonderful experience in Namur. So, I was excited to discover the wheelchair accessibility of this cable car, thanks to an article I found on Wheelchair Travel.

You can start your cable car experience at the Centre-Ville Station, which is usually the starting point. The station is fully accessible for wheelchairs, and there is an elevator to take you up to the Cable Car Platform. At the ticket office, you can buy a one-way or return ticket. And as a person with reduced mobility (PRM), you can get a discount on both options.


When it’s time to enter the Cable Car, they will stop it to make it easy for you to get in. There is no gap between the platform and the cable car, and you can enter without any steps. The space inside the Cable Car is a bit small if you are using a powerchair, but it is still possible to fit. The seats inside the car can be folded up to give you more space.

Once you reach the top of the site, you have the option to immediately return or step out and enjoy the breathtaking views of Namur. I highly recommend taking some time to soak in the beauty of the scenery. There is also a wheelchair accessible restaurant called Le Panorama where you can have a delicious lunch and enjoy the views.

You can watch the full video of the process and my entire cable car adventure on Facebook, Instagram, or TikTok. The video shows the accessibility features of the Cable Car and gives you a visual representation of my experience. 


Overall, my experience with the Cable Car in Namur was positive, as a traveler and wheelchair user. The accessibility features, including an accessible station, an easy boarding process, and the opportunity to enjoy the views, made this a memorable adventure. Whether you are in a wheelchair or not, the Cable Car in Namur is a must-visit attraction.
