Create an itinerary including Citadelle de Dinant
A fortress that watches over the city, Citadelle de Dinant stands on the site of a fort that was constructed in 1051. The citadel blends with the cliff face on which it sits, complete with a grassy roof, so, from a distance, it's difficult to see. However, once inside, a huge interior courtyard and a museum offer visitors a glimpse back in time. Climb the 400-plus steps leading to the entrance, or save your energy and ride a cable car to the top. In the museum, learn about the fortress' history with life-size figurines in dioramas, as well as traditional museum exhibits. Go up the stairs to the upper walls of the citadel for a view over the Meuse Valley. Purchase your tickets when you arrive; the attraction is rarely crowded. Put Citadelle de Dinant and other Dinant attractions into our Dinant travel app, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Before going I ve seen some bad reviews so I went a bit biased. This place is great. We parked on the top (it's free). There are a lot of rooms and attractions, and the view is AMAZING. A sunny day...

  • amazing historical fort in the beautiful city of Dinant. This entire city is a hidden gem with so much to do and see. The city itself is more of a weekend getaway for locals. As American tourists working on a nearby Belgian AFB we loved this town as "home base" for 2 weeks. The Citadel is one of the main highlights!!
  • This town is one of the most beautiful places I have visited (in BE, even Europe) recently. It's stunning to find such beauty so close by to Brussels, surrounded by nature, castles and a sense of peace. Would recommend to anyone
