The little fortified town of Willemstad in the southern Netherlands is situated near the point where the wide river Hollands Diep divides into two arms. Between the two arms lies the island of Goeree-Overflakkee. It forms part of the Rhine-Meuse Delta. The town of around 2000 population is mostly contained within a seven-pointed star-shaped ditch or moat, of roughly 600 m diameter. Inside this enclave are beautifully maintained buildings, town hall, old wind-mills – all one imagines the Netherlands to be. William the Silent gave orders in 1583 for the construction of the present star-shaped fortress with its seven bastions, two gates and regular street layout.

In later centuries buildings like powder magazines, bomb shelters and WWII blockhouses have been added. The fortifications are well preserved, and while a relatively small port of call, it is certainly unique and offers visitors some fascinating historical background. The Mauritshuis Museum is set in a magnificent old house amidst beautiful grounds. Take an easy walk around town to see the town hall, churches, tower clocks, and homes of the past wealthy. See the first Protestant church in the Netherlands, the Koepelkerk, built in Willemstad in 1607.

Building in the countryside surrounding the town is forbidden, so the general landscape is much as it may have been in past centuries. The cities of Rotterdam and Dordrecht are within a short drive from Willemstad. Downstream just 35 km is the southern part of the North Sea. Interestingly, there is another Willemstad in Curaçao, of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, in the Dutch Caribbean region. It also has a starfort, built 1636.
