History of Tapijn A2 The inundation basins or De Koompe


The fortified town of Maastricht has three fortified fronts on the west side of the Meuse. The northern or Bossche Front between Cabergerweg and the Meuse could be inundated during a siege. The High Fronts, a fortified front that could not be inundated due to its location on high ground, was located between Cabergerweg and the Waldeck bastion on Tongerseweg.
