Anping Fort (Anping gubao), Tainan

(3.8/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Brush up on your local history with an excursion to Anping Fort (Anping gubao), a 17th-century fort constructed by the Dutch East India Company. Developed over a 10-year period between 1624 and 1634, the fort became a central hub for trade in East Asia throughout Dutch and Japanese occupations of Tainan. Follow well-kept paths to some of the few surviving remnants of the original fort, including the red brick city walls and oyster kiln. Much of the site is newly built, housing a collection of museums for you to wander through, learning the fort’s extensive history. Climb the steps of the observation tower for some of the town’s best views, and make the most of the predominantly English displays. Arrange your visit to Anping Fort (Anping gubao) and discover more family-friendly attractions in Tainan using our Tainan trip itinerary maker.

  • 安平古堡這附近很熱鬧!整條街都是小吃美食,鼎邊銼、薯塔、炸蝦餅、藤喜家勾勾冰、BB彈芋頭達人都很好吃ㄛ~ 最推薦的還是台南牛肉湯!只要停車在附近就可玩很多地方~適合全家大小同遊~ 
  • It is a wall built by the Netherlands. And the Tei success is protected Taiwan from the Netherlands. Admission is 50 Yuan. Many stalls out around a Festival mode. It is fun to eat buy.

  • No biggie, I expected an old building and instead is all renovated. The price of entry is right

  • Definitely worth the trip. It's absolutely beautiful. They introduced English speaking tour guides as off July 2016. We had the pleasure of having Joseph as our guide. Informative, passionate and an around great guy. So much to do Ian's around this area.
  • Don't listen to Dharmashloka's review. There is plenty to see. Chi Mei museum donated a few pieces to the exhibition hall and the dynamic history of the dutch, japanese and Chinese reigns are explained quite well. Not to be missed in Tainan.
  • Great buildings and tower! 50nt admission. ice cream and drinks available. Also Souvenirs available, adjacent to Anping market area for additional shopping.
  • Old town of Tainan. Around the Fort you have the street market. Inside you can practise chinese writing
  • Built by the Dutch VOC, slightly larger than the Chikan Towers.
