Fortress : Michelin's recommendations

This is a typical example of a fortress built according to the old system of Dutch fortification, built around a pentagonal bastion, and boasting two surrounding moats. The fort can only be reached by two narrow roads which lead to the market square via a maze of bridges and vallum walls. Ten streets radiate around the square towards the bastions and main perimeter wall. You can also visit the Protestant church, the former synagogue, barracks and mills.
