The Defense Line of Amsterdam

It was supposed to be the perfect security for our country, but the Defense Line of Amsterdam, part of UNESCO World Heritage Site Dutch Water Lines was overtaken by time and remained unused as a defense line. Good thing, too! Because today we can enjoy a large number of intact fortresses and an enormous area of untouched nature. Nine of the 42 forts are located in Old Holland.

Outside peak hours - Make your own plan

Old Holland knows many beautiful, fun, cozy or romantic places, which - because they are so incredibly beautiful, cozy or romantic - are often quite crowded. Because of this, their beauty can sometimes escape you. Our tip: visit those places at a less busy time! For example, in the morning, before sunrise. Or when dusk sets in, when the quiet after a busy day is extra soothing.
