Fortress Visit Report : Eben Emael : Outside

Not so much a report, more of a listing of some photos. These are of the outside and the top of the fort.

This fort is massive, huge, something like 900metres X 700metres.



Bloc 1, entrance.

Casemates firing towards Bloc 2

Around the back of Bloc 1 to get to the top

Just before the brow, gun emplacement Visé 2, 3 X 75mm cannons


Difficult to photograph because of undergrowth and slope


Air intake
