Your entry way into Naarden Vesting

Naarden Vesting is one of the best-preserved star fortresses in Europe and unique in the Netherlands. Built in the 17th century to protect the all-important province of Holland and the wealthy city of Amsterdam, the fortress has been continually rebuilt, extended and adapted to keep pace with the changing demands of warfare. As always, water played a pivotal role in securing Holland’s borders. Visit De Gele Loods to discover how it all worked.
