Fort 1881 Hoek van Holland

Active and Sportive, Hoek van Holland, Monument

Fort aan den Hoek van Holland was built in 1881 as part of the Dutch coastal defence to protect the Nieuwe Waterweg. You can take a journey through the past in this beautiful building, and the different rooms will give you a sense of what living and working in the fort was like. There was never any fighting here, but the fort played a crucial role in the Second World War. The contemporary exhibition shows video fragments from the period of the German occupation from 1940 to 1945. There is also a film about the Atlantic Wall and the last cabinet meeting of the Geer II cabinet on 13 May, 1940, before they left for England.
