The walled town of HEUSDEN dates back to the beginning of the 12th century and was an important element in the defense of Holland between 1580 and 1620. The Bastion is located on the banks of the River Maas. In the 14th century a large defense wall, including towers and gates, was built around the town.
Points of interest include the bastion walls ( vestigingswallen ), the Harbour ( Stadhaven ), the fish market ( Vismarkt), three Windmills ( Molens ) and Saint Catherine's Church. (Catherijnekerk).
Heusden is north-west of S'Hertogenbosch and can be reached via the A59 and take exit for N267
