Fort d'Emines, Namur

4.2
#5 of 7 in Historic Sites in Namur
The Fort d'Emines is one of nine forts built as part of the Fortifications of Namur in the late 19th century in Belgium. It was built between 1888 and 1892 according to the plans of General Henri Alexis Brialmont. Contrasting with the French forts built in the same era by Raymond Adolphe Séré de Rivières, the fort was built exclusively of unreinforced concrete, a new material, rather than masonry. In 1914 the fort was heavily bombarded by German artillery in the Battle of Namur. Unlike seven of the nine Namur forts, Émines was never upgraded to become part of the fortified position of Namur. Instead, it became a supply and munitions depot. The fort is now abandoned on private property.

  • With a view to the preparations for the commemoration of the 11/11 (100 years), I visited the fort of Emines. I found the fort in good condition and well maintained. I recommend visit this fort and before he returned to the private sector.

  • This site has kept all his history of the first world war. This site is not open all year round and if you get a chance, definitely visit it. Nestled in a green environment, the buildings are filled with history and a tour guide there is organized which makes history and experiences even more moving.

  • The fort being closed, impossible to see anything and therefore to make a more precise comment ... Little info outside and little visibility.
