With 46 fortresses around Amsterdam this should be a sight to see. Sadly, most of the forts are only opened in September during their “special week/month” or on very rare occasions every other time. Some of the forts I passed by were turned into wine cellars, resorts or art galleries. I would have liked to see some information boards at each place and I definitely would have liked to see them more open and with a real museum attached to it. The Fortress museum south of Amsterdam might be the place for facts, but as far as I can tell, it only shows part of the history behind the Defense line of Amsterdam. The island fort is more open, but with limited time its hard to visit.
