The cable car ride is a good start to the visit. The section detailing the suffering of the town at the outbreak of WW1 was fascinating. I had assumed that accounts of Germans massacering women and children were propaganda. Not so. Children three months old, and a woman of 88 were slaughtered. On a lighter note, the views are great,... 更多
There are stairs to the Citadel or you can take the tram. If you take the steps, there are places to rest along the way and the view of Dinant and the Meuse is amazing. Large fortress with interesting history. Views of the river and the town are beautiful.
The cable car ride was enjoyable and the views on the way up and from the top great, the cafe is basic to say the least, the playground not too bad, although a little unsure of the choice of pebbles as a soft landing surface for little ones. 40c to use the loo. And then there's the museum, thoroughly depressing... 更多
When I first saw the stairs, I gasped in fear but then I glanced over and saw the cable car and I was relieved. The cable ride up was GREAT! It was a great first impression with spectacular views of the the small city of Dinant. Once we arrived to the top, we followed the signs to the Citadel. The... 更多
Our tour was originally in french, but our tour guide was nice enough to translate into English for us. The history of the citadel is interesting. The best part of the tour is the amazing view over the town and the river. Parking on the top of the hill next to the citadel was convenient and the lift took us... 更多
This was really awesome, and definitely more than I expected. We will definitely be returning. Intense in certain places and very informative.
If you have problems to go up staircases, better to take the cable car to go up the Citadel. Interesting museum and fantastic view up there; can be interesting for children but if you have small ones, hold their hands at the exit of the museum as it shakes a bit to give the sensation of a war situation.
Although the views from the Citadel are amazing, the information provided is a bit misleading. Upon entering the fortification we had to pay an entrance fee and were told there was a guided tour. Upon joining the tour, it was in fact guided, but only if you spoke French or Dutch. The tour guide was aware of the fact that... 更多
We had a wonderful guide, who involved the children by asking them questions about the information he had given us; who spoke both French and Dutch so the whole group was included. He definitely made this visit special.
This is probably the best preserved citadel among the other ones in Wallonia. On a sunny and clear day, the views are fantastic from the top. You can see the whole of the town of Dinant, Meuse river and others.
Take a walk up there (or the cable car thingee) from down the end of the street beside the The Collegiate Church of Our Lady... 8EUR per adult... Once at the top you can take the kids to the play ground, or go to the castle and do a tour. In the castle grounds there isn't really much to see,... 更多
I see from other reviews that people managed to see some rooms, but when we were there everything seemed to be closed. There was a tour guide who seemed to do his job rather well, maybe with the guide you could enter? Was not clear. That is why 3 stars because otherwise, it is just the view for which you... 更多
Had fun, But wanted to see and explore more. Took cable car uphill nice views, nice city. Good outlook over the town. Go, but don't expect to explore
