    With the road between the two gates shows Bourtange a beautiful image of the defensive works from the sixteenth century. Attractive village with many activities including a candle factory, a synagogue and five museums.

    A bit outside of every thing,but surely the travel worth. The vesting is in a very good hape and has great facilties within the wall (restaurants). Especially nice when there is a re-enactment  more »

    Do come on Sunday afternoon where enthusiastic local volunteers dressed up in traditional costumes to reenact the 'merceneries' during the 90 years war. The place is incredibly tiny and you might find yourself exploring the whole town in less than an hour.

    A small town that brings you back to the 17th century. A nice outing for the family and there are events...

    Cycled to Bourtange from Papenburg. Amazing "little" 'castle' with a traditional show inside with firearms and canons. Unique experience!

    We stopped by this fort on the way back from Copenhagen and Bremen... Very well maintained and beautiful fort. I was lucky to get my drone in the air to snap a couple of awesome photos!
