Fort Isabella - Vught

N 51.6732887 / E 5.2881876

Fort Isabella was built around 1618, when 's-Hertogenbosch was still in Spanish hands. The fort was named after Archduchess Isabella Clara Eugenia, daughter of the Spanish King Philip II.

Only the entrance gate, on top of which a gatehouse was placed in 1703, was spared during demolition in 1914. The fort was later part of the defense line around the city and from 1917 housed a barracks, which from 1922 to 1940 was the mother barracks of the famous Regiment of Wheel Fighters. After a period as an asylum seekers' center, the barracks complex is currently populated by numerous residents and small businesses. You will also find some nice restaurants with a terrace.

Guided tours of the barracks are organized by appointment and focus on the rich history and traces of that history. This includes five national monuments, including the ramparts that lie in the adjacent forest.
