The casemates are part of the town fortifications. These bombproof vaulted rooms were used for military purposes, such as the storage of ammunition or provisions, or as a shelter for soldiers or gunfire. The casemates measure 4 by 5 metres and are 3 metres high. They are connected by man-sized passageways.

The entry to the casemates was situated on the town side, whereas a solid brick wall was built on the side of the moat. The outer wall of each of the casemates has four loopholes. A thick layer of earth was laid over the vaults to counteract the impact of bombs.
