    Fort St. Andries is located near the lock of the same name and is beautiful to see and read what the fort used to look like. Unfortunately you are no longer allowed to walk around the ruins due to the risk of collapse.

    During the war, the fortress was used by the Germans as ammunition storage and weapons. When the Allies arrived in '45, the fortress was blown up by the Germans. After the war, the fort was further demolished and the resulting debris used to harden roads.

    A nice fortress to stroll around, the old contours are still clearly visible and take you back to times long gone.
