A little bit of underwhelming experience. The structure itself whilst interesting enough is quite expensive given that it's essentially a walk up some stairs and back down again (and an A4 page of information). I probably wouldn't have paid the entry had I not specifically...More

Napoleon had it constructed in 1804. Recently completely renovated. For a few euros you can climb the pyramid. Near the pyramid is a restaurant and a playground. Attractions in the playground are both paid and unpaid. The playground is somewhat rundown.

By visiting this pyramid, you step into the Dutch part of history when they were ruled by the French for 20 years. Because of the fact that the French army were stationed here, they needed something to keep them occupied so they built the original...More
