The network of canals is magnificent, especially in photography. Actually watching the city walls does not appreciate the design.

Dit vestingstadje is erg leuk! De huizen en straten zijn zoals ze vroeger ook waren. Op sommige tijdstippen kun je ook binnen kijken en ervaren hoe het er toen aan toe ging. 1x per jaar wordt de besto... read more »This fortified town is very nice! The houses and streets are also as they once were. On some times you can also look inside and experience how it there then. 1 x per year, the storming of the fortress acted out and this is a beautiful spectacle to see. Walk over the bridge, on the shore and see for miles in the landscape. At the fortress you can park for free. The village of Bourtange is also worth by walking/cycling.show original

Enorm mooie locatie
If you like historical stuff, you can't miss this. Recreated from how is was originally with cannons and drawbridges. Great to see from above on a map.
Had been looking forward to visiting for years, it was slightly underwhelming compared to the Netherlands best stops but is still impressive in its size and scope. I think in high travel season the interior buildings are more accessible and you get more depth to the experience. Military buffs will get the most out of it, understanding it's effectiveness in its time. The drive in from the south on side/country roads was half the experience and shouldn't be missed.
Such a lovely lovely town! Perfect place to relax for a bit. Don't forget to walk around the city walls.
