The Fort d'Emines is one of nine forts built as part of the Fortifications of Namur in the late 19th century in Belgium. It was built between 1888 and 1892 according to the plans of General Henri Alexis Brialmont. Contrasting with the French forts built in the same era by Raymond Adolphe Séré de Rivières, the fort was built exclusively of unreinforced concrete, a new material, rather than masonry. In 1914 the fort was heavily bombarded by German artillery in the Battle of Namur. Unlike seven of the nine Namur forts, Émines was never upgraded to become part of the fortified position of Namur. Instead, it became a supply and munitions depot. The fort is now abandoned on private property.To visit Fort d'Emines and get the most from your holiday in Namur, create itinerary details personal to you using our Namur travel planner.
Fort d'Emines reviews
I went there this Sunday 17/02/2019. Not had access because out of season, it starts in April, A see the reviews I really think to come back for a more complete visit, and then change my rating of stars.
The fort being closed, impossible to see anything and therefore to make a more precise comment ... Little info outside and little visibility.
