"Visiting Citadelle" Dinant Things to Do Tip by go_AIR

Dinant Things to Do: 91 reviews and 158 photos

This structure is located nearby the main bridge and next to Notre Dame cathedral, very visible from even the train station. To enter it, you should pay some fee (forgot how much but less than ?10/person). It is located high up on the hill and you could access there by stair (more than 400 staircases) or by cable car. The entrance fee includes free guide. Once in there, wait for a guide (usually older men) in the courtyard in front of the shops inside the citadelle, he would give flyers (somehow I think they can guess which tourist who doesn't speak french nor dutch) in your languages (I got english). Just follow him when he starts. My guide started in french and dutch - i think this is their main languages - but ended up in explaining in English too as soon as he realized that there were many English speakers in his group. It was a nice tour about the history, tour around the citadelle (including the prison and a replication of a bunker if hit by a bomb). After the tour, don't be stingy, give some of your coins to your guide !
will ad pics later

Directions: Cross the main bridge (from the train station), it's located on the left of the main street.
