It's a nice escape from Brussels. Nothing to buy from shops, Just drink beer and eat. You must take a lot of photos from the castle,you must go up there. The ticket for the castle 8,5 €/person . Go inside the Virgin Mary churce. Go to see the statue of Charles de Gaulle. Go to see the sax.

My fater-in-law is from Belgium, so we have made many trips here over the years. This past summer we visited the Citadel of Dinant, I was amazed at the improvements made since the last time we visited 10 years ago. First, make sure to stop at the Cathedral at the bottom of the Citadel. It is free and has never... More

I would describe one of my latest trip, had it with some friends of mine. I went to Dinant, a little city collocated in the region of Walloon in Belgium, but at the same time big in other ways because there are many things to do. I especially would like to talk about the "La Citadelle" which is a mountain,... More

Arriving on the top, you can see the entire view of this romantic & historic place gives. Inside the history of Belgium & City per se is being showcased. It's surreal upon roaming the citadel , you're traveling back on war years. Very informative , one of the best place to visit, it reminds of the great heroes of Belgium.... More

The citadel itself would have been a very short visit, information in English was limited but the views spectacular. The exhibition of sand sculptures of Disney characters entertained for long and the cafe and children's playground went down well

Very typical example of a real citadel very well kept. Wonderful the sight from the down, incredible the sight from the upper part of the city. Price is not very cheap but it worths.

I highly recommend visiting the Citadel. The views are spectacular! They have done a great job at telling the history of Dinant and the Citadel in the "museum" portion. If you are in shape walk up the 408 brick steps to the top!

Great place with lots of history. Built in 1100 i believe, and used for every battle / war ever since. Make sure you get a guided tour with the awesome Joseph, guiding you in three language at the same time and providing an entertaining yet impressive tour with lots of historical facts. The view over the river and Dinant is... More

We climbed the 388 steps to the entrance as a challenge. The self guided tour is informative and the views are breathtaking. The history and the exhibits are somewhat disturbing. As I suppose war is.
