1-The Citadel overlooks Dinant from its about 100 meter cliff. The Citadel was built during the Dutch occupation in the early 1800s, the French destroyed an earlier fortification (build in 1051 and rebuilt in 1530) in 1703.
2-Cathedral of Notre Dame was originally built as a Romanesque church at the end of the 12th century. In 1227 rockfall destroyed the tower and the church was partially rebuilt in Gothic Style. In the late-medieval Dinant became known for its metalworking capabilities, and many religious objects used in this valley were manufactured in Dinant and some are displayed in the Cathedral.
3-Kayaking on the Meuse River (there are 3 different colors for the kayaks - Blue-Yellow-Red) There are different routes and the shortest one is 8 km.You may also take a tour by boats on the river.
4-Grotte La Merveilleuse, a show cave . Entry fee for adults 8 € (Euro) (the guide tried to tell the story of the cave in Dutch, French and English but nobody understood a word. Better to read a before you go there :) The tour takes 45-50 minutes and you need to wait until the previous group finish the tour.
