“Really interesting half a day in Geofort”
Review of GeoFort

GeoFort
Ranked #1 of 1 things to do in Herwijnen
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Old fortress transformed into education & fun park, really well done, and in further development. Among the highlights: local history (explanation of the functioning of this fort, and the system of forts arround) and reality (NL water line), Earth history (a big model of the Earth where you interactivelly observe the changes on the surface of the planet from the beggining till now), bulding wooden houses and test their earthquake safety (fun!), testing sense of orientation (underground tunnel between the former ammunition storages) and smelling (quite big labirynth where you have to follow a certain smell - really great idea and realisation), geomedia-based games where you detect e.g. landuse changes, bad railway tracks, another really funny - learning cartographic projections based on photos of individual visitor's face (you can send your carographically transformed faces to your email); each participant can make a simple compass; a treasure-hunt-like game all over the area - using iphones (borrowed from the Geofort) for virtual-reality-search of virtual boxes (seen only on the phone) with questions - and our answers have been collected - to be overviewed later in a class; a small "adrenaline park" for kids and adult kids as well; there are some activities especially for the kids, and a few sheep observing the visitors all over the Geofort.
