Dutch casemate Geniedijk Hoofddorp

Dutch machine-gun casemate from 1934. 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 machine-gun casemate served to support the adjacent cannon casemate.
