Reliving history in IJmuiden

Last minute call! This weekend is a special one on Forteiland IJmuiden. Re-enactors will dress up and act like World War Two soldiers again and portray the soldiers who manned the fort and bunkers through the years.

Tonight an excursion on the island, through the fort and bunkers, will lead along these Dutch and German soldiers. See how they live, practise, eat and guard on the fort. Tomorrow, there will be demonstrations all day long and some Germans will man the 644 bunker and its armoured turret. So if you want to see a Sechsschartenturm in action be there. I’ll be there!

Get you tickets via IJmuidense Rondvaart Maatschappij.
