In Bourtange, we are planning to transport visitors, school children, and possibly also packages from the parking lots outside the fortified town to the centre of the fortress, through to the parking lot on the other side. If possible, we will also drive on to the elementary school just outside the fortress. The children who go to school there will then also be able to use the minibus.
At the moment, the main focus is on finding the most suitable route, taking into account the many bridges, narrow gateways, and cobblestone roads. In combination with the most eligible vehicle supplier, a proposal will be made for the definitive route. This proposal will then go through consultations with the municipal authorities, residents, and the Bourtange foundation. If all parties agree, the pilot will start. The aim is to have the minibus driving during the tourist season.
