    The fort bij de Kwakel is one of many fortresses build to defend Amsterdam, the "Stelling of Amsterdam" - an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
    The idea was to inundade the area around the Capital and defend the city from a ring of fortresses 15 km around.

    Nowadays a local bar and a Galerie are housed in the building.

    This café is a small local bar at De Kwakel named after its owner (and his size).
    It is housed in a converted row house.

    Enter slow, because the dart section is right after the entrance.
    The bar is at the center and in the rear is a separate room for small parties.

    The "Fortenpad" is a 2 hours walk of about 8 km along 2 of the forts of the "Stelling van Amsterdam", a UNESCO heritage site.
    The forts are the Fort aan de Drecht en the fort Bij de Kwakel.
    The forts were build between 1885 and 1911.
    In times of war the surrounding lands were to be inundated from the Drecht locks.
    The forts were build to guard the locks and the local rivers Amstel, Amstel-Drecht, Kromme Mijdrecht and the kleine Drecht and the polders and the dike roads.
    In between the forts is "De vuurlijn" with firepoints made of earth.

    Equipment: Hiking shoes and rain gear (if necessary)
