Fort Ellewoutsdijk - Ellewoutsdijk
Fort Ellewoutsdijk was built between 1835 and 1839 and was part of a defense line along the Western Scheldt. After the separation from Belgium, the Zeelanders were afraid of an attack coming from the sea. The forts on this Scheldel line were to guard shipping and support the fighting ships with artillery. Most fortresses have been demolished, but Fort Ellewoutsdijk has remained. In World War II, the fort played an important role during the Battle of the Scheldt: the largest operation on Dutch soil that liberated the Zak van Zuid-Beveland. Today you can discover the fort during an excursion and enjoy the beautiful view of nature.
