Trip Planner: Europe / Belgium / Wallonia / The Ardennes / Namur Province / Dinant / 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.

If you visit Belgium, this town is a must-see. It has all the charm of the countryside and old towns by the river. Take a boat tour in La Meuse and be amazed by all the beauty surrounding the river banks.
Visiting the Citadel I Dinant Belgium was a fantastic historical experience. The cable car was out so we had to walk 960 steps to get the the top and then back down. There is a cable car also but it was down for maintenance. The views we're spectacular and the history exciting.
