Dinant is about an hour and a half away from Brussels and ideal for a one day excursion. I have been there with a group from my city Waterloo. It is a true picture-postcard town.
Dinant provides a stunning spectacle, especially when you look across the Meuse and lift your gaze towards the Citadelle and the onion-domed tower of the Collegiate church, all highlighted by the ribbon of houses and shops running alongside the river.
Set between a dramatic cliff and the river, Dinant invites you to enjoy the pleasures of the water where you can book a little cruise with or without restaurant and watch the beautiful riversides with lovely little or big houses. take the lift up to the Citadelle (fortress) of Dinant, from where you have a stunning view over the city, the Meuse river and the valley.
Was fun because it shaked a bit and some ladies were not happy !
High on the rock sits the citadelle ! Fortunately a lift takes you up there but you can also go by car or walk.
All along the riverside under the citadel and the church are lined up many restaurants, or cafes where you can sit and watch the ships going up and down the river
The houses are really "glued" to the rocks
The lift took us up to the citadelle and we had this beautiful view over Dinant
Here you could take boats small or big once depending on what you want to do
