Stevensweert: An Old Fortified Town

Stevensweert is a former fortified town in Limburg. The fortress was founded by the Spaniards during the Eighty Years' War and is surrounded by bastions, ravelins and ditches. Together with the VVV tour guide you will walk through the historic centre and visit the old ramparts, of which a section has been restored to its former glory.

The fortifications were built by the Spaniards in 1633. From the centre of the fortress a clear and characteristic street pattern was designed to better defend the fortress. All streets run like 'spokes in a wheel' to the centre. This street pattern is still clearly visible.
The tour starts with a short film about the history of Stevensweert. Afterwards the guide will lead you through the historic centre, past beautiful monumental buildings and an original fortress cannon, to the reconstruction of the fortifications.
