For the sake of low energy consumption and a more "green" journey, be sure to favor soft mobility as much as possible.

By bike

For the closest and/or the most motivated! The RAVeL is a network of public roads (paths) managed by the Walloon Region and reserved for the circulation of pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders. The RAVeL network is very important in Wallonia, it allows access to the center of Namur in complete safety from all over the country.
We invite you to go to the Wallonia - RAVeL network portal to define your route.

By bus

This year, it will be very easy for you to take advantage of the amenities of the TEC network to get to the Aves Festival.

In the direction of Namur Station, the SPW Cap Nord Gallery, located just behind the station, will welcome you with many exhibitors, something to refresh you and have a snack on your arrival.
