Have you ever wondered why the city of Naarden is shaped in a six pointed star? Or have you been curious about the history of other Dutch fortresses in the Netherlands? Then a visit to this underground and open air museum will brighten up your day. You will have the opportunity to walk along the ramparts and view the fortress from our museum boat.
The Dutch Fortress Museum has its housing in and on bastion Turfpoort (the Peat Gate) since 1955. A bastion is a pentagonal fortification of the main wall. Naarden is a star shaped fortified town because of six of these bastions.
The Dutch Fortress Museum in Naarden is the ideal trip for the whole family; children, adult and seniors. It offers a lot of activities; gun shooting, inundation line golf, boat tours and quests for young people. A visit to remember; exciting and educational!
