The Fortress Bourtange in the Bourtange, Netherland has been our to-do list for a long time. I think we have put it off because it seemed a bit touristy and we didn’t know what to expect. It turned out to be a nice day and completely out of character, we decided to go back for The Battle of Bourtange in a few weeks. They are reenacting the battle with Napoleon. I dig Napoleon.
We wandered around the star-shaped fort. Visited the gift shop, took some touristy pictures and had lunch at the only restaurant. Oh did I forget to tell you about the Brocante Shop … well I guess the secret is out on that now. Oodles of tins and enamel! *Sigh*
This place was espalier tree heaven.
