Fort Honswijk

Fort Honswijk, situated on the Lek River, is one of the most prominent forts of the New Dutch Waterline. Fort Honswijk's tower (built between 1841 and 1848) is the oldest and largest in the Waterlinie and possesses singular architectural beauty. Fort Honswijk was designed to stop the enemy from crossing the Lekdijk dike and to close off the Lek River in cooperation with Fort Everdingen on the opposite banks of the Lek.
