Beatrix Park and the Lunetten Forts

The Beatrix park in the neighbourhood of Lunetten offers a nice piece of green nature in the city. In the park, you can also check out some of the Dutch history, as the Lunetten Forts, part of the New Dutch Waterline are located in Beatrixpark!

The New Dutch Waterline was an important defense line for the Netherlands from 1870 till 1945. It includes 46 forts, so it is much bigger than just the Lunetten forts in Utrecht.
