After our visit to Drenthe we went to Bourtange!
Bourtange is a fortified city (well, more like a village going by the size) that was first build in the 16th century, but what's left of it these days has more of an 18th century vibe.
We were there late in the day, so it wasn't crowded luckily enough. This is one of the entrances into the city.
We immediately climbed the walls for the view. There's water all around Bourtange so it could be well defended.
They also still had some of the cannons!
I hope they had people standing on the wall to tell the cannon men where to point the cannons, because I couldn't see over the wall from there.
More cannons. They certainly had a lot of firepower.
They were rebuilding a bridge, so part of the city couldn't be reached.
All in all it was a fun city to visit.
Next we went back to Germany. In the evening we went out for dinner, but my owner got something that shall not be named, so I didn't take pictures.
Coming next: a castle
