The Groote de Dinant is a wonderful cave! The tour takes ~40min and the staff are soooo friendly. Overpriced, but totally worth it!! Unfortunately, not feasible for frail people - lots and lots of stairs - as expected for a cave.

The cave is very nice and the guide is very keen to tell the story about the history of the cave, which was discovered only some 100 years ago. The reception/cafe/shop is a bit scruffy but the staff is friendly and speak English.

Picked these caves as they allowed dogs (had done Han caves before and the other one we found that allowed dogs was closed). Very friendly welcome and the tour was very good and interesting with plenty of time to look around at the various formations found inside the caves.

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
