The old barracks, the refurbished bunkers and the barracks are certainly worth a visit if you are interested in history. For even more history, you can go to the City Museum, where you can see all kinds of objects that were used in daily life in the past. Nowadays, Hellevoetsluis is a modern fortified town with plenty of activities and festivities throughout the year.
