Visit Dinant with the family

In fact it resonates in all the everyday objects! From the patatropical jungle to the aquacrazy river, prepare to experience a totally astonishing journey with the family.
After a delicious break in a nearby café, cross the Meuse to the superb Dinant cave, justly named “La Merveilleuse”. Venture far into its depths and discover all the marvels of its breathtaking concretions. But don’t forget to wear something warm, the temperature is a cool 13°C!
Visit Dinant as a couple
Between its superb monuments, multicoloured houses, water-based activities and year-round festivities, Dinant is a paradise for anyone who loves a languid stroll.
Whilst those who prefer something a little more energetic can climb the 408 steps up to the Citadel, you can also reach it by cable-car. At the top, several rooms and exhibitions explaining the history of Dinant are open to the public but the view alone is more than worth the trip! Down by the river once again, treat yourself to a romantic trip on the Meuse: there are plenty of tourist boats waiting to take you on a journey to discover Dinant from every angle.
