Well, where to start? The caves are quite spectacular: they really have some very intersting features and history. They are easily accessible with comfortable stairs, a steady temperature of 12 degress Celsius, and large open spaces (with a slight lack of a sense of adventure...More

It a nice cave which you could visit but have to walk quite a lot inside. You should take the guided tour to understand the rock formation and history of the caves. Just walking about it alone will not be of any use. A good...More

It was a small entrance to a great hall. The tranquility and the chilly ambiance of the cave took me back to the prehistoric age. It's a nature museum ,where history greets twenty first century. Time is carved into beautiful shapes in every other turn...More

I wouldn't call it "the marvellous", like its French name, 'cause i've seen far more beautiful ones, but it's quite nice and well explained. about 50 min tour in 2-3 languages. Lot's of steps up to go out! The gift shops it's a bit creepy......

The Groote de Dinant is a wonderful cave! The tour takes ~40min and the staff are soooo friendly. Overpriced, but totally worth it!! Unfortunately, not feasible for frail people - lots and lots of stairs - as expected for a cave.
