Ciney is a Walloon municipality located in the Belgian province of Namur. On January 1, 2006 Ciney had a total population of 14,958. The total area is 147.56 km² which gives a population density of 101 inhabitants per km².

Several beers from the city are now brewed by Alken Maes and still bear the name: Ciney Blonde, Ciney Brown and Ciney Special. Those beers were first brewed in 1978.

The municipality includes the town of Ciney, along with a number of villages, including Chapois, Achêne, Leignon, Sovet and a few more.

The city was damaged by a heavy storm on 14 July 2010. The bell tower collapsed on its nave. Nobody was hurt, but the bell tower no longer exists. It was the city's symbol and also Ciney's beer symbol. The reconstruction will take more than a year and will cost some million euros.
