Behind the Matsu Temple, the fort was a stronghold of Dutch power until its capture by Koxinga in 1661 after a nine-month battle. Most of it has been reconstructed but it's still an impressive site. A small museum on the grounds highlights the history of the Dutch occupation of Taiwan. Buses 2 and 88 from Tainan Train Station come here. The stations you want are respectively Post Office (郵局) and Anping Fort (安平古堡).
