Casemate A: Fortress Building

When entering the Dutch Fortress Museum you become submerged in the history of fortress building. Several scale models explain how medieval castles with brick walls and towers changed into earth-covered fortresses and fortified towns with square corners. Famous Dutch fortress builders are Simon Stevin, Menno van Coehoorn and Cornelis Krayenhoff. At the end of the corridor a cannon waits to be fired.
