In the north of Holland, near the German border, lies the fortress Bourtange. This perfectly restored small fortress town east of the city of Groningen dates back to 1580. Bourtange is built up in a star shape which was typical for these fortress towns.
Things to Do in Bourtange
Go back in time and see the medieval architecture, canals and dykes. The town has four museums, several restaurants, historical shops and a hotel in the former soldier barracks. Be sure not to miss out the re-enactments of battles that took place in the Eighty Years War against Spain.
