Sunken Bridge In Netherlands Gives Visitors Unique Access To Historical Fort



Designed to keep away French and Spanish invaders, the Fort de Roovere, dated from 17th century, is now by accessible via a sunken bridge.

Built by Ro & AD Architects, the “Moses Bridge”, as it is aptly called, parts the moat’s waters and allows visitors to cross and explore it.

From a distance, the bridge is nearly invisible, but it seems to appear as visitors approach.

Made from sustainable Accoya wood to prevent fungal decay and water from warping it, this fun idea enables visitors to access a piece of history.
