About Linie1629

Linie1629 is a historic defense line in the Netherlands, which tells a fascinating story from the time of the Eighty Years' War. This line, constructed in 1629, played a crucial role in the strategy of Frederik Hendrik, the Prince of Orange, during the Siege of 's-Hertogenbosch. The line formed part of an ingenious system of forts, redoubts and waterworks designed to hinder Spanish forces and isolate the city.

What makes Linie1629 so unique is the innovative way in which water was used as a means of defense. By deliberately flooding the land surrounding 's-Hertogenbosch, Frederik Hendrik created an almost impenetrable barrier, which was a key factor in the successful siege.

Today, the remains of Linie1629 are still visible in the landscape. They form an important cultural and historical heritage, where visitors can learn more about the military history of the Netherlands. The area surrounding the line is also an attractive place for walkers and history buffs, who can explore the old forts and fortifications and delve into the turbulent past of the Dutch struggle for independence.
