The largest fortified city in the Netherlands

Gorinchem, nestled between the Linge and Merwede rivers, is truly a fortified city. Early in the 17th century, this medieval city was ‘modernised’ with brand-new fortifications. The original city earthwork ramparts with bastions are almost completely intact, making Gorinchem the largest authentic fortified city in the Netherlands.
