The citadel of Dinant is a citadel in the Belgian town of Dinant. The citadel is built on a rock, near the city center, 100 meters higher than the water surface of the Meuse. The current fort was built in 1815 on a site which was originally fortified in 1051 when the region was ruled by the Prince-Bishopc of Liège. In the citadel, a historical and weapon museum has been on display since the end of the Second World War. The visitor can drive to the citadel by private means, or climb a staircase from 1577 with 408 steps. Since 1956 you can also overcome the height difference with a cable car.
