Magnificent. Dinant is a beautiful town, the Citadel is built on the hill of the town on a fantastic spot. The Gothic architecture influenced by other styles of European and classical eras, is wonderful. So many things to see. From the war museum to the Disney museum. History and Art meet there, a must go for everyone that visits Dinant and Belgium in general. Great view of the city and the river from the rampart of the fortress. Beautiful ride with the cable vehicle that rides you to the Citadel.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
