Our Opinion about Hamm
The historical neighbourhoods, Hamm and Cents are nice places to live even though the lack of shops could be a disadvantage.
Note also the noise nuisances due to the passages of the planes at landing or take-off.
However, Namur the well-known confectioner, has opened a modern and welcoming restaurant in the neighbourhood of Hamm where you can enjoy the local delicacies.
