Dutch casemate Geniedijk Hoofddorp

Dutch gun casemate from 1937. Built in the Geniedijk to compensate for the adverse effects of the construction of a viaduct over the Bennebroekerweg. This road is south of the dike, left and right of the A4, south of exit 3. The gun casemate was supported by an adjacent machine-gun casemate.
