The citadel, at least the one you can visit in the present, is not that old (19th century) but it is great to see such a big building in the height. Quite impressive. Clear exhibition about the battles in the city of dinant during WWI, not boring and very educational. One can visit the citadel in many ways. For the... More

If you park (for free) next to the fort, you pay 8.50 eur (adult) for the entrance, this includes the lift (both ways), but does not include the toilet, which will be charged additional 0,4 eur.

The view from the top was spectacular, but that's about all there is. You pay 11 euro to take the gondol up, take photos and then go back down since there is not much else to do or see.

We got the cable car up to La Citadelle and started to explore the rooms on our way to the information desk. There was no signage to tell you that you had to be escorted around the venue with a tour guide and after waiting for the next tour, we found out that the guide would not be doing it... More

We skipped this after driving to the top of the hill because the price was €8.50 and the receptionist couldn't give a very clear description to what we would see. Since we'd just been to the Citadel at Namur the day before, which we could explore at our leisure free of charge, we passed.

Very accessible- even with pram by a rope way. If you seek adventure you can climb all the way in stairs too. Beautiful view and very good historical information!
