It was between 1818, and 1821, during the Dutch occupation, that the citadel was built in its current form. Throughout the kitchen, the bakery and the forge, you will discover the daily life of 400 soldiers that were living there. Don't forget to...more

Many thanks for these very useful advice about our free parking.
We are very pleased that you enjoyed your visit at the citadel.
