Muizenfort (Vesting Muiden)

As early as the seventeenth century the fortified town of Muiden was part of the (Old) Dutch Waterline. The Muizenfort served to close off the passages via the Zeedijk (dike) on the north and the Naardertrekvaart canal on the south by flanking fire from the casemates and frontal fire from the protective earth wall. It was built in the period 1874-1877, at the same time as the shellproof barracks that it faces.
