An ingenious modification of the 19th century, the ramparts are a 7 km long cluster of parks that were initially a set of military fortifications around the city of Burges. The parks are constructed around the urban metropolis - a scenic circle of 3350 trees along with cycling and walking tracks for those who would prefer to walk or ride bicycles across these aesthetically maintained parks. The ramparts are evidence of the growth of the city itself such that they are one of the most significant constructions of Burges.
The ramparts around the city can be divided into various architectural segments: the four city gates (named Ezelpoort, Gentpoort, Kruispoort, Smedenpoort), numerous lock weirs, two water houses, 15th century Poertoren (powder tower) and stone bridge, the four windmills in the north-east left from the 11th century, the Minnewater park and the cluster themselves. Two modern bridges were also built for pedestrians in 2002. All these brick and mortar constructions interspersed with nature’s gifts - trees and bushes and lawns and grass makes it is tough to curb the urge to go and give this magnificent 26,000 acres of pure tranquillity a visit.
