Fort Isabella is a fortified work for the defense of the city of 's-Hertogenbosch, located on the north side of the current municipality of Vught. The name of the fort comes from Archduchess Isabella (1566-1633), Duchess of Brabant and daughter of the Spanish King Philip II. In addition to fortification work, another important function of the Fort was the quartering of part of the garrison. In and around 's-Hertogenbosch, many soldiers were stationed in these times. The starting time of the construction of this fort is not exactly known, but is estimated at around 1614. It is certain that the fort already existed in 1618. Together with Fort Sint-Anthonie, this fort had to protect the south side of 's-Hertogenbosch. Fort Isabella is built as a regular pentagonal ramp, with five bastions.

The tower was added separately in 1891 to prevent setting. The tower was blown up in 1944 by the Germans and after the war only restored to the height of the ship and adorned with a gable roof. In the interior you will find clean brickwork that is here and there polychromed.

The monument to the lost child is a memorial. The monument is located on the terrain of Vugh, a national monument camp. The monument was placed to commemorate the children who were transported from the camp to the death camp on June 6 and 7. In 1666, many Jewish children were transported in the name of being transferred to special children's camps. However, most death camps that reach the polar regions are absorbed almost immediately.
