Hidden Tourist spots – Dinant, Belgium | Dinant counts 14,000 inhabitants and is located at the Meuse River, at a point where the river cuts its way deep into the western Condroz plateau. Sited in a steep sided valley between rock and river, Dinant had little space to grow, and it therefore developed into a long thin town along the river shore. Why is it worth a stopover? Nice about Dinant is the city’s landmark Church of Notre Dame de Dinant and the fortified Citadel on top of a cliff. For certain jazz lovers Dinant has some kind of extra magnitude, too. The house of Adolphe Sax, inventor of the saxophone, can be found in the street of the same name.

And if your wife does not want to miss out on cheap French pharmacy products: from Dinant it’s just a 20 km ride to neighboring Givet in France.
