Fort III

The Fort is a part a complex of 18 forts of so called "Fortress Poznań". The 19th century Poznań Fortress is one of the best preserved examples of such objects in Europe. Its construction consisted of two stages. The first stage, initiated in the first half of the 19th century, included the training ground fortress - virtually non-existent today. Its remains are the Cathedral Sluice and the Citadel. In the second part of the century military technology was considerably more developed, especially in its artillery aspect. Consequently, the decision was made to build a multiple fort fortress. The fortress works from that period have been mostly preserved until the present day.


The route of the sightseeing leads through both the underground and the aboveground part of the fort. The underground part includes the barracks, the great gunpowder works which could house 35 tonnes of black powder, a barge caponier, the emergency shelter of the artillery subwall as well as a labyrinth of the front caponier premises, where the thickness of the walls exceeds 3 metres, and which guarded the access to the moat.
The visit to the fort lasts about one hour. The entrance is at: 11, 12.30, 14, 15,30, 17.
The fort is located in the New Zoo, therefore to visit the fort one must buy also the ticket to the Zoo.
