Fort Rotterdam is an old dutch neighborhood in Makassar which worth one visít to see how they influenced the surroundings from the 16th century. The fort dating back to 1545 was rebuilt in Dutch style. Not much to see, even the protestant church is a very simple building, but you can see some sections of the original walls

Ruins left during the Dutch rule of Sulawasi . Built around 17th century ,located about 500m from Pantai Losari . Just some parts of the lower fort wall left. A small museum, a small Art gallery and an open space used for " events "
Entrance is free , place need a clean up , most probably left unkept during Covid . A short visit suffice.

One of the best preserved examples of Dutch military buildings within Indonesia, dating back to mid 1600s. Set in manicured grounds, and surrounded by restored/maintained walls - which you can walk all the way around. Also includes a museum. A notable fort for Sulawesi, for the Indonesia/Dutch conflicts, and the source of the original name of Makassar. This said, for me, it lacks some of the authenticity and interest seen in other forts - maybe precisely because it is so well maintained (there is a flower garden in one bastion, eggplants growing in another, and the lawns are perfect).

one of the tour options in the middle of Makassar city, it is suitable for those of you who like history, but for those of you who come to take pictures I suggest to hire a guide because they already know a good photo spot from which angle.

Fort Rotterdam certainly would have been a dominating present in the Dutch colonial control of Makassar.
While there are some interesting exhibits in the museum (Fort) it really was not an exciting presentation. The air conditioning was not up to the task on a very humid and warm day and this in itself inhibited enjoying the experience.
My wife has had both her knees replaced and struggles sometimes with sustained walking. The lack of a lift in the Fort caused her to pull herself up and down the stairs - there were no seats in the Fort building.
Glad we see the Fort but enjoyed other Makassar sights much more.

Big fort from the Dutch colonial history, well restored. Pity that the explanations on panels are only in Indonesian language. Guides offer their services at the entrance, but be aware: the one we had spoke hardly any English and charged 100.000 rupees, far too much.

Interesting grounds and buildings to ramble around. Locals will give you a nice guided walk for a couple of bucks. One of the highlights of Makassar, which isn't axactly abounding with them.
