Fort aan de Jisperweg

Fort aan de Jisperweg

Visit the website
The Fort on the Jisperweg was already completed in 1885 as a defensible earthwork. The bombproof building was not completed until 1914 and the fort was fully usable from then on. At that time the first soldiers were already present on the fort during the general mobilization of 1914. This fort, together with the Fort on the Middenweg, was the last to be added to the Defense Line of Amsterdam and the North Front. Life at this fort was no fun for the soldiers, especially because they had hardly anything to do. The fort is not open to the public, but you can of course admire the structure from the outside. Pay attention, because this fort is well hidden in nature. From a distance, it even looks more like a green hill in the landscape than a fortress. The fort is still completely intact and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
