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.

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.
