Photo Friday: Fortification of Naarden

Photo Friday: Fortification of Naarden

In the 17th century, the medieval Dutch city Naarden was changed into a star-shaped fort, with a large moat and fortified walls. Today the moat and walls are in pristine condition and largely accessible to the public. I took the photos below while hiking around the city (outside the moat) and over the city walls (inside the moat). Especially outside of the moat hikers are rewarded with beautiful views of the moat, the fortifications, and the city itself.
