This amazing sunken style bridge is the only way to the Dutch fort that is also well worth a visit. 2 for the price of 1!

A rather unusual geographical layout needed a bridge that could lift a road, but from the side of the road instead of over it. This is the result of that and it is well worth seeing.

Even if you don’t have the stomach to climb, it is still well worth watching people scramble up to the top of it.

If you plan to visit the unusual why not stay in the unusual as well. These hotel rooms look like something from a James Bond film ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ (at the end, the floating life raft).
