The cemetry is located at top of the citadelle and is very well maintained and once can feel the peace surronding the place, even though it denotes a very traumatising and dramatic part of history of the war. Peace and calm surround the area, giving...More

I’ve visited many war cemeteries over the years and was touched by the simplicity of this one, with each grave marked by a simple, wooden cross. Lovely and rather touching.

A very respectable cemetary, for the 1000's killed at those un-needed wars in Europe. It is near a well kept modern playground for children, and we thought that at least the hope for the new generation is that no more wars will be held

sitting atop Citadelle de Dinant is a memorial to visit.No entry restrictions or fees as such , one just have to take a minimal fees of 3 or 4 euros to go out of the small pubic park and enter the cemetery.
