More Forts (6)

I'm still catching up with posting pics from the forts we visited the past weeks. Today pics from the last two forts we visited two weeks ago when our brother in law took us on a ride around the area of Leerdam where they live. In my former two posts you saw pics from around Fort Everdingen and Fort "Nieuwe Steeg".

The last two forts we visited that day with our brother in law were Fort Asperen and Fort Vuren. We didn't spent so much time on these two forts, so I didn't took so many pictures. At Fort Asperen we took a short walk around the fort, but didn't went inside. We went on top of the fort where you had a nice view over the area and over the village of Asperen. Fort Asperen also has an official website.

Nowadays Fort Asperen is used as an artcentre and through the years it has built up a certain reputation with that. Till yesterday the fort had an interesting exhibition made by the famous British filmmaker Peter Greenaway. The exhibition was called Fort Asperen Ark, A Peter Greenaway Flood Warning. Unfortunately we didn't had the time and possiblity to visit the exhibition.

Peter Greenaway is probably best known for his movie: "
The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover"And the last four pics are from Fort Vuren. I took a little more, but most of them didn't came out that great, so I'm not going to bore you with that.
This picture was teken through a glass window. That's why you see some spots on it.
