There were several guard posts in the fortress, but the Hoofdwacht guard post from 1792 was the most important. This central post on Grote Markt housed the officers and, allegedly, Napoleon during a working visit. These days, however, Hoofdwacht is a restaurant on a pleasant square with many café terraces in the middle of the fortress.
