Fort Oranje, Kralendijk

(2.3/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
If you’re in town and fancy a bit of history, take a look at Fort Oranje, a small Dutch fortification built over 300 years ago. Boasting impressive views of the ocean and close proximity to shops and restaurants, you can wander around within the walls, though most of the actual building is still used by the government. Original British naval cannons stand on the walls, and the tapered lighthouse serves as a striking landmark. Add Fort Oranje and other attractions to your Kralendijk trip itinerary using our Kralendijk itinerary planner.

  • You'll have to check the Internet to find out anything about the fort. The gate was open, so I entered and walked around to see what I could find out about it. Saw the cannons and the view..  more »
  • The location of the fort is very beautiful. Masar what do you want, the island had to be defended. It is a lovely, quiet place with beautiful, historic, buildings.

  • After we were in Oranjestad/Aruba and Willemstad/Curacao, we we can actually save Kralendijk. The tiny Fort is probably the only point of interest, at least in Kralendijk.
