The Grebbe Line
Near Renswoude you will find old remains of the Grebbe Line. This line was intended as a pre-defense of the Hollandse Waterlinie, a Dutch defense line. Construction of this line was started in 1745. Today, near Renswoude, you will still find the Groeperkade, which was intended to divert the water that entered the Slaperdijk through the locks. You will also find Fort Daatselaar from 1799, the best preserved defense work of the Grebbe Line.
