Neuf-Brisach - A short trip to a Vauban fortification


Last week my wife, my daughter and I took a short trip to some friends in Lörrach, near the swiss border and also near to the Alsace. 

On our way home we stopped at Neuf-Brisach, a town that was planned by Vauban as a fortification. Here are some impressions of this fortification. Further information can also be found here, but there are a lot of more websites about this interesting town.

Vauban chose the area for building his MasterClass fortification.

This pictures shows our daughter standing in front of one of those impressive walls. 
Tatjana is 1,58m tall so you can imagine the height of the wall.

One day I´ll have to build something like a Vauban-fortification for my gaming board. :)
