It was winter time and there was no other way to reach this place, what many people don't know is that 12 or 14 British pilots of WWII are also buried in a corner of the cemetery. Very moving to visit my Uncle's resting place.

The cemetry is located at top of the citadelle and is very well maintained and once can feel the peace surronding the place, even though it denotes a very traumatising and dramatic part of history of the war. Peace and calm surround the area, giving no hint of the horrifying past.

I’ve visited many war cemeteries over the years and was touched by the simplicity of this one, with each grave marked by a simple, wooden cross.
Lovely and rather touching.

as we used car going up to citadel of Dinant, we noticed this small cemetery, located just 20 meters before the ticket box gate. comparing to so many famous and big war cemeteries in Belgium, this cemetery just very regular, but respect to those soldiers. there is also small portion of this cemetery in front of the Attack Monument, preserves for mixed countries such as Canada, New Zealand, and Wales.

A very respectable cemetary, for the 1000's killed at those un-needed wars in Europe. It is near a well kept modern playground for children, and we thought that at least the hope for the new generation is that no more wars will be held

sitting atop Citadelle de Dinant is a memorial to visit.No entry restrictions or fees as such , one just have to take a minimal fees of 3 or 4 euros to go out of the small pubic park and enter the cemetery.

The French National Cemetery is a very small and simple cemetery. See it because you are close - beside the Citadel. It is not really an attraction.

If you are at the Citadelle and go to the playground at "Les Canons", cafeteria, it is hard to miss the cemetery. Go and honor the fallen.

This cemetery is just outside the citadel, so easy to visit. But instead of quiet contemplation it offers the noise of a children's amusement park right next to it. You do wonder about town planners at times!

Once we arrived at the parking lot of the Citadel, we discovered this French National Cemetery. It contains victims of war from WWI and WWII. It's quite symmetric laid..
