One side or the other
Sep 2020
No matter which side of the river you parked on, be sure to take a walk over the Charles De Gaulle Bridge to have a look at the city from the other side. The bridge in itself is not much to see. It is decorated with a number of saxophones, which is nice. Other than that it is mainly a way to get from A to B.

Very nice to see all the saxophones on a well maintained bridge, right at la Citadelle. Take a moment to enjoy the view!!

Probably better known as the Saxophone Bridge
Aug 2019
This bridge is adorned with saxophones because one of Dinant's famous citizens is Adolph Sax, the inventor of the saxophone. The bridge is named for the famous French General, later President of the French Republic. There is a sculpture of Charles de Gaulle that is adjacent to the bridge.

Interesting tributes
Jul 2019
This bridge crosses the Meuse river and gets you over to the citadelle. It is a tribute to Charles de Gaulle who died at this bridge in WW1 as well as displaying large saxophones on it, this is a tribute to Adolphe Sax who was born in Dinant and created the saxophone. Each saxophone has a country's flag and has a name plate on it with the country's name. The bridge also gives you a great view of Dinant on both sides of it. Quite an interesting bridge.

Flag not present

Decent enough bridge (does the job and gets you across the river), but the saxophones representing different countries... the British one doesn’t include the flag. Unacceptable!

Nice bridge across the Muse.
Sep 2019 • Couples
Crossed the bridge a couple of times from the railway station to the citadel and back. It is a lovely design with just one buttress in the river.

Amazing view

Very nice bridge crossing the river in Dinant. It's got a bunch of saxophone statues donated by different countries and has a great view of the cathedral, houses, and fortress.

Saxaphone bridge
Sep 2019
Either direction you get wonderful views of Dinant, the river and boats, while walking past colourful saxaphone statues, in respect of the inventor , Mr Sax, who was born here.
