GIVET

When you drive from Dinant to the south a long the river Maas you will end up in Givet (France). The fortress, which was built in 1555 by Emperor Charles Quint dominates the view of the city. In 1678 Vauban enlarged the fortress. You can visit the fortress, I arrived however after openings hours so I can't tell you if it is worth a visit. It looks however very impressive when you look at it from the valley.
