Fort Nigtevecht lies hidden in the landscape, next to a quiet road running along the Amsterdam-Rhine Canal. It can be found in a unique spot between Abcoude and Nigtevecht, surrounded by nature. Large portions of the structure, which was commissioned in 1892, are still intact – including the fort itself, the batteries and the line dyke. A unique feature of the fort are the two restored buildings that once contained hatched turrets. Although it was built as a defence work, the area around Fort Nigtevecht saw very little fighting. A large part of the fort has remained unchanged since the time it was built.
