The Bastion Middleburg is a bastion in Malacca City, Malacca, Malaysia located at the mouth of Malacca River.HistoryAfter the fall of Portuguese Malacca to the Dutch in 1641, the Dutch carried out new measures to ensure the defense and security of Malacca due to the ongoing threats they received from outside and inside. They fortified the wall of Malacca City to further strengthen the existing city defense left by the Portuguese. The fortification measures involved the construction of a bastion strategically located at the mouth of Malacca River. The construction of the Bastion Middleburg was carried out in 1660.

    Beautiful old Dutch Fort dating from the 1660's and one of my favourite things to see in Melaka. This is because it is a real piece of history. Melaka was a really important place back in these times,...  more »

    In front of the Dutch square along the Malacca River. Fortress that is surprisingly small scale. Just to free up inside, but Cannon staring out, and. Everything is kinda disappointing.

    Remarkable site of the city, but enough poorly highlighted. Poorly visualized the site as it was the arrival of the first Europeans. Visit all the same.

Where to stay in Melaka

Luxury hotels in opulent buildings frequently sit right alongside budget accommodations in Melaka. Side streets and alleyways offer secluded rooms in attractive buildings that are often as grandiose as regal hotels. For budget lodgings, look for the main arterial roads, which lack the charm of the rest of the town, but provide comfortable rooms at reduced rates.
