DescriptionWater represents the connective thread of this outing in the Dinant region, with a citadel, castle and cruise on the itinerary

A city walk, a visit to two of the most enticing heritage sites in Wallonia and a cruise along the Meuse are on the itinerary for this day in the province of Namur. Let yourself be enticed by this region, which perfectly encapsulates all the attractions that the Ardennes can offer you!

The excursion begins in Dinant, a postcard-perfect city that is regularly named one of the most beautiful in Belgium. You can admire the unique location of the city, nestled between water and rock, on this walk, as well as the various saxophones that remind visitors that it is the birthplace of Adolphe Sax, the inventor of the instrument.

The citadel that overlooks the city is another striking and essential part of Walloon heritage. It can be accessed via the cable car, or on foot by climbing 408 steps. You can admire the exceptional view over the Meuse, which is quite simply one of the most breathtaking vistas in Belgium! You will discover its history during the visit, from the looting of Dinant in 1466 to World War I, not forgetting the period of Louis XIV and Vauban.

After a break at ‘La Citadelle’, the restaurant at the foot of the cable car that serves a wide range of different dishes and menus, you can then set off on a cruise along the Meuse with Dinant Evasion. Enjoy a relaxing excursion in an enchanting setting.

This boat trip, which ends at Freÿr Castle, offers easy access to this incredible site, which is listed as a Major Heritage Site in Wallonia. Learn more about this building, which was originally a Renaissance-style manor, before it was revamped in the 17th and 18th centuries. Finally, make sure not to miss the stunning gardens, which will delight you with their beauty, layout and water features.
