Kunstfort bij Vijfhuizen

Historical landmark
10 minutes away
Kunstfort bij Vijfhuizen is art, her­itage and na­ture in one. The mon­u­mental Fort bij Vijfhuizen is one of the first con­crete build­ings in the Nether­lands and part of the De­fence Line of Amsterdam; a large-scale 19th-cen­tury de­fen­sive plan that was never com­pletely put into ac­tion, and has been de­clared a UNESCO World Her­itage Site in 1996. Since 2005 the is­land is a des­ti­na­tion for art, a unique lo­ca­tion where vi­sual art, mil­i­tary her­itage and na­ture come to­gether. The ex­hi­bi­tions mirror the fort’s sur­round­ings: a col­lage of en­gi­neered land­scapes show­casing the de­ploy­ment of na­ture for a wide range of—now often out­moded—pur­poses.
