“Culinary delights at the most striking location of the Haarlemmermeer. History Fort The fort at Vijfhuizen is part of the Stelling van Amsterdam, a 19th-century line of defense around the capital. The Defense Line consists of a ring of forts, batteries, numerous dikes, locks and inundation polders. With the threat of a hostile army, dikes would be broken and a gigantic ring of water emerged. The Defense Line is a high point of defensive and hydraulic engineering technology and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996 and must be preserved for future generations, as are Versailles and the Pyramids of Giza. The fort at Vijfhuizen had been vacant for years and slowly fell victim to vandalism and the elements. Seized by its charm and history, a plan was developed for a second life. ”

Monument / Landmark
“De Eenhoorn is een paltrok-houtzaagmolen in de Nederlandse stad Haarlem. Hij is gebouwd in of voor 1776 aan het Spaarne. Hij is bekleed met hout dat zwart geteerd is. Omstreeks 1926/1927 is er bij de molen een elektrische zagerij gebouwd. Om de molen te behouden heeft de De Hollandsche Molen hem in 1927 aangekocht. In 1963 is hij vervolgens overgedragen aan gemeente Haarlem. Deze is nog steeds eigenaar van de molen, maar in 1986 is het beheer van de molen overgedragen aan Stichting Molens Zuid-Kennemerland. Onder de gemeente draaide de molen eens per maand, tegenwoordig is hij regelmatig weer zagend te zien.”
