Description: Fort Pannerden is a disused military fort situated near to the village of Pannerden in the east of the Netherlands. In November 2006, it became the focus of national news stories because a group of squatters were evicted in a large-scale operation by police, helped by the army. Later on in the same month, it was resquatted.

The fort was constructed between 1869 and 1871 to serve as part of the New Dutch Waterline. It had strategic significance in that it guarded the Pannerden Canal, but the fort never saw active service. In World War I the Netherlands was neutral and in World War II the fort was surrounded and surrendered without a shot being fired. After 1945, the building fell into disuse.
