Dinant is a French-speaking Belgian town located in the Walloon Region. It is located 90 kilometres to the south of Brussels, 30 km from Namur and a stone's throw from the French border. This town with 14,000 inhabitants is situated on the right bank of the Meuse, within the Vallée de la Haute-Meuse, a unique setting with splendid landscapes that is one of the region's tourism hotspots. Dinant also boasts a rich cultural heritage that includes the Collégiale Notre-Dame de Dinant, Bayard rock, the citadel, Notre-Dame de Leffe abbey, etc. What's more, the town's reputation is built upon a plethora of cultural and sporting provisions, such as museums, Meuse crossings, descents of the Lesse by kayak and numerous rambling or cycling routes. And as if that wasn't enough, Dinant is home to Belgium's most highly regarded climbing sites, most notably Freÿr rocks, opposite the castle.
