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.

The hotel offered a free ticket to the citadel. Because of other activities we arrived around 1630 h at the citadel. We just missed the last tour with a guide. Without a guide you are not allowed to visit the restricted areas. I think you...More

Great cable-car ride to the top. The views of the city are brilliant! Lots of photo opportunities. The citadelle itself has a great story - just wish more of it was open. Much was closed during our visit. Could also be sign-posted better.

We probably only spent an hour up here. It was ok- the highlight is definitely the view over the town. We joined a guided tour but there was no English spoken so we didn't understand anything.

The cable car is cool, and the area at the top is full of Dinant local history, which is surprisingly extensive. The views from above are extraordinary.

Entrance into the Citadelle was €8.50 per person which included the gondola ride round-trip or you can walk up the stairs which are pretty steep going up. They also have a package for €14 which includes a cruise ride down the river. It definitely was...More
