  • Today were the museums not open yet, but it remains a beautiful surprise. You can run a multi Geocaching here, while searching you see vanalkes of the fortress. Described on several buildings for which it was used. Definitely worth it

  • The fortress Bourtange is beautifully situated in the landscape of Groningen and gives a good picture of life in former times. The buildings are all nicely restored and the village square looks very cozy. Around the village runs a nice hiking trail.

  • Most of the shops and the houses as museums were unfortunately closed in January. Still worth a stroll through the narrow streets, and on the ramparts. The views over the star-shaped plant worth. In the run-up to Christmas, a Christmas market in the fortress is available, which is worth visiting.

  • Great historic fortified village with unique scenery and good provisions for visitors including free WiFi. Outside the obvious tourist seasons nice and quiet.
  • I had a lot of fun creating a candle with friends. Very nice lady in the candleshop!!
  • Beautiful fortress with it's typical mud defence walls. The fortress has been rebuild as fortresses were build during 'The Golden Age' period of the Netherlands: typical star-shaped, with a defence waterline (the canals) and a high defence mud wall. Bourtange is a village were people live, but the small village has transformed into a big open air museum. To access, you have to buy a ticket. Then you have the opportunity to experience 'The Golden Age' in a certain way. A most enjoyable, familyfun trip. Check out the dates in May or June: every year a fictional historical battle is performed.
  • It's a very nice little fortress. We had a very nice guide that told us everything about the history of the place. There is also an area for playing games: bow and arrow, shooting, throwing the horseshoe, canoeing etc. The guys there are friendly, laid back and fun and they made our experience really special. I'd definitely recommend the place for a fun day out.
  • Beatiful and unengaging
