Fort 8

Our last stop during Open Monument Day 2016 was Fort 8 in Hokoben, a fort built around 1860. By the time the first World War started, this building’s technology was already outdated, so they never actually got to use it. It’s a unique fortification, as it still shows the original bricks since it was never fortified with concrete. Now it houses several youth movements and sports facilities.

Because of the red bricks, this fortification really stood out. Most forts I’ve visited have grey walls, so the red walls made it all the more impressive! Also, so much symmetry! 😍

For the next post, I’ll go back to where I left off: July last year! Here’s hoping I can keep up posting so I can have pictures of a whole year up before I leave for my next adventure! 😎
