Fort Pannerden is hidden under a rood of earth, spread over 5 floors and is situated on a prominent point in the Gelderland river landscape. The fort was built between 1869 and 1871 to monitor the junction of the Rijn and Waal and to slow the advance of the enemy. Therefore, the fort is also known as the tap of the New Dutch Water Line!
