As a historian of the First World War (and of Belgium in particular), I've been struck by how Belgian towns and cities that suffered especially seem not to want to remember. That's not the case in Dinant. The citadel, which featured prominently in the events...More

Beautiful place and view from the top. The museum part was interesting and there were really exciting parts, but it could be better. The ticket price for an adult is 9.50€
