Overview

It was between 1818, and 1821, during the Dutch occupation, that the citadel was built in its current form. Throughout the kitchen, the bakery and the forge, you will discover the daily life of 400 soldiers that were living there. Don't forget to visite our new space 1914-1918, explaining all the fights that took place in dinant during the first world war.

I went up on the cable car to the top and walked around the citadel by myself. It was okay but not memorable. I walked back rather than going back on the cable car.

In the centre of Dinant, near the church, you can up to the citadel with a cable car. The fortress is well kept and has several musea. A guided tour is recommended.

Great idea! But I can’t help you with that, except to say that the stairs go through the Citadel and it does have closing hours.
