Fortress Naarden and the Fortress Museum
Naarden Vesting has been preserved wonderfully through the ages, with its double city walls and double canals. The Fortress Museum is located in one of the bastions of the fortress.
An absolute recommendation for a day out is a visit to Naarden Vesting – this town was completely restored to its former glory. The ancient town has lots of interesting monuments: bastions, city gates, weapons storage rooms and soldiers’ quarters. There’s a great variety of shops too; antiques shops, art galleries, hotels, cafes and restaurants in and near these monumental building.
A highlight of your visit to Naarden Vesting surely should be the Dutch Fortress Museum. Do you want to go back in time and shoot a real life cannon? You can, here in the Dutch Fortress Museum. In the underground casemates you can wander around through Fortress Naarden’s history.
