Stichting Menno van Coehoorn (MvC)

www.coehoorn.nl The Stichting Menno van Coehoorn is a national all-volunteer organization that promotes, since its founding in 1932, the conservation and protection of historical defence works, like walls, fortresses, casemates, defensive positions and defence lines. The Netherlands are in the lucky possession of a number of intact fortified cities, for example Naarden and Willemstad. Thanks to the Stichting Menno van Coehoorn these cities are kept in their original form. Aside from these spectacular monuments there are, all over the country, many other old military objects. They often are of (cultural-) historical and/or architectural value, as well as examples of town-building and landscaping. On many of these obsolete military installations – because of a long period of isolation – beautiful flora and fauna have developed. Fortifications of Dutch origin can also be found in many foreign countries. The Stichting Menno van Coehoorn also promotes the conservation and protection of those.
