Tainan Attractions

Tainan City ─ Fort Anping (Fort Zeelandia)
Anping Fort is built during the Dutch occupation in 1624 on the foundations of the Dutch stronghold named Fort Zeelandia. That fort was the anchor point of early settlements in Tainan for both the Dutch and the Chinese, and much of the settlement’s history lies in Anping’s old streets surrounding the fort.
The fort has changed hands and changed names many times over. The Dutch first called it Orange City, but then changed it to Fort Zeelandia. It became Anping Castle when it was the home of Zheng Cheng-Gong (Koxinga). It had also been call Anping City and Taiwan City once, but finally renamed as Anping Fort after the reconstruction. It has become a popular tourist attraction nowadays. Although reconstruction took place, the remnants of Zeelandia, a red-brick wall and a Banyan tree, are still maintained at Anping Fort and are classified as a class one historical monument.

Over the years, the surroundings of Anping Fort have been re-constructed into a historical park. Due to the growing tourist demands, the park also includes an Observatory Platform and an exhibition hall. Also, there is the statue of Koxinga, some cannon replicas, and some very nice trees for visitors to enjoy. It’s not all a reconstruction where there is some of the original fort left on-site. There are 70-meter long stretches of both the north and south outer walls of the original Fort Zeelandia as well as remnants of two bastions. There are signs in the park with both Chinese and English introduction. The old customs-house at the top of the fort is an exhibition hall with some nice pieces of history and the model of the original fort. Visitors can get to know more of the Anping Fort history through visiting the park and the exhibition hall.
