Very beautiful cave.

I've seen much better ones of course, but this one is definetely worth visiting if you're in the area. Quite impressive.

I decided to visit the caves as a way of getting out of the 33 oC heat above ground and knew it would be cooler. It was and pleased I was on many levels. 9 Euros to enter (Adult). Constant 12-14 oC year round, a guide that spoke several languages, one being English giving salient points regarding the history &... More

These caves were discovered in 1904 while trying to build a subway. Opened to the public in 1905. The structures found inside are interesting. Has a very beautiful "waterfall" the rooms are large past the 1st level and a unique curved stalagmite - geologically the must see

Good cave, Well-lit, good paths, decent stairs. Ideal for young kids. The guide was just very boring.

The cave is easily reached on foot. It is a 10 min walk from the centre. You can also go by car as there is a big parking. I was immediately greeted by a super charming guy that helped us with the tickets. We had to wait a while, but there was a tent equipped with a fire. You can... More

As per me this is the place not to be missed at Dinant, although most people tend to not visit the same as it not really much talked about and also it is located on the other side of the river of the major attractions. Also if viewed from outside the little shed doesn’t look too promising but you will... More

The church is a gotic one, built over an old romanic one. Some vitrals where destroyed during wars, but still the best is perfect.

For 9 euro, I completely recommend it. In addition to friendly personnel, you will get a discount for Leffe's abbey and the citadel. The cave is a bit cold, and the trip takes about 50 minutes. Our guide spoke French and English very well.

The gentleman that lead the tour spoke English well. He was friendly and permitted us to take pictures. He was very informative about the caves and gave some history on the discovery as well as how it was used as a shelter during WWII. He was very knowledgeable about the caves which was great for a little science lesson for... More
