Fort Bourtange

Impressive from the ground (and insane from a bird’s eye view), Fort Bourtange is a star-shaped man-made wonder in Bourtange, Netherlands. Built in the 15th century, this fort’s main purpose was to control the only road between Germany and Groningen, which was controlled by the Spaniards during the time of the Eighty Years’ War. Today, the property’s museum and gardens are open to the public and provides a sweet mix of history and natural beauty.
