Anping Castle, formerly known as "Orange], "Zeelandia], "Anping City", "Taiwan City", is located in Tainan City, Taiwan. Founded in 1624, it is the oldest castle in Taiwan. Since the founding of the city, it has been the center of Dutch rule over Taiwan and the residence of three generations of the Zheng Dynasty. The old castle houses are purely red bricks and tiles, which reflect the sunset at dusk and have a beautiful scenery. In 1953, they were selected as one of the eight scenic spots in Taiwan by the Taiwan Provincial Government.
Anping Castle, located in Tainan City, Taiwan Province, was once the center of its rule when the Dutch occupied it. It was called "Anping City", "Taiwanese City". After Zheng Chenggong recovered Taiwan, he also used it as his residence. Anping Castle, first built in 1624, is the oldest castle in Taiwan. The beautiful scenery of the castle red tile and the setting sun is called "peaceful sunset". It is one of the eight sceneries in Taiwan. In fact, the castle has become a relic with only ruins and broken walls. The existing buildings are all rebuilt in the later stage, but they have also experienced years of polishing and can be regarded as classics.
Anping Castle, also known as Orenz City, Geranjah City, King City, Anping City, Taiwan City, is a fortress once existed in Tainan City, Taiwan. Originally built in 1624, it is the earliest fortress building in Taiwan. Since the founding of the city, it has been the center of Dutch rule of Taiwan and the residence of the rulers of the Zheng Dynasty. Anping Castle has two sites - "the remains of Taiwan City" and "the walls of Geranjah City and the architectural remains of the city".

Our destination today is Anping Gubao, which is far from the railway station. There are "Taiwanese Happy Line" buses and No. 2 buses to take. While waiting for the bus, an elder sister from Taipei who visited relatives here introduced the information about taking the bus to us enthusiastically. At the same time, she also introduced the scenery and Humanities of Tainan in detail. It seems that such enthusiastic people can be met at any time in Taiwan. They are always very enthusiastic to tell you useful information, which is also a microcosm of the progress of social civilization. First, take a bus through the city to reach Anping Castle. This is the first landing point for the Han and foreigners to arrive in Taiwan. Therefore, there is the saying of Taiwan's First City or Taiwan's First Street. We bought tickets for NT$50 per person (equivalent to RMB 12) and visited Anping Castle. Once again, we felt that tickets for tourist attractions in Taiwan were really cheap. Anping Castle, a defensive fortress built after the Dutch occupation of Taiwan in 1634, was formerly known as the city of Geranza and is now a first-class monument in Taiwan. Entering the gate of the scenic spot, the first thing you can see is the statue of Zheng Chenggong, the national hero. His aftermath was built in the exhibition hall of Anping Castle on the platform. The unique red tile spire watchtower is particularly noticeable. There is also an antique building in the scenic spot, which is the Geranja Museum. Since the founding of Anping Castle, it has been the center of Dutch rule of Taiwan, and later the residence of the Zheng Dynasty for three generations. But at present, the real Dutch relics in the scenic area are the bricks and walls which are only left behind the museum and are originally on the south side of the outer city. The whole scenic area is greenery, flowers embellished, neat and clean, during which people feel very comfortable to visit the past and discuss the present. Through the introduction of museums and exhibition halls in the scenic area, we have a clearer impression of the Dutch rule of Taiwan and Zheng's successful recovery of Taiwan in the Ming Dynasty. At the end of the 16th century, European countries such as Portugal, Spain and the Netherlands began to compete for maritime hegemony by means of navigation. In order to trade with the coast of China, the Dutch occupied Taiwan. After 38 years of Dutch rule over Taiwan in 1662 (16 years of Yongli in Ming Dynasty), Zheng successfully recovered the city and renamed it Anping Town. There are two statues in the corridor of the exhibition hall. One is Zheng Chenggong, the other is the last Dutch official, the hero of the winner and the loser of the bandit. In the exhibition hall, Zheng Chenggong and the Dutch "Treaty of Peace" were also displayed, the first of which was "Both sides should forget all the hatred they had caused". It's a very interesting historical treaty. Of course, after the Sino-Japanese War, Taiwan was ceded to Japan by the "Ma Guan Agreement]. Today, the Geranzache Museum in the scenic area was once the Anping District Public Office after the victory of the Second World War and the recovery of Taiwan. A small Anping Castle scenic spot has infinite vicissitudes, witnessing more than 300 years of typhoon storms and clouds. After watching the introduction of museums and Exhibition halls, we went up to the castle watchtower to see the panoramic view of Anping area. Now this scenic spot is a must-have attraction for tourists from Tainan. In the scenic area, we also saw a group of local pupils coming to visit under the guidance of teachers. History education should start with teenagers.
Established in 1845, Deji Yanghang transformed its early export of sugar and tea into imported consumer goods for people's livelihood. Initially, Heineken Beer and Nestle Coffee were all represented by Deji Yanghang. Anping Tree House, formerly a warehouse of Deji Yangxing Bank, has formed a special landscape in which houses and old trees coexist after half a century.

Take No. 88 and sit directly at Anping Castle. Anping Castle is the oldest castle in Taiwan. Its fate is closely related to Taiwan's history. Not only has it changed ownership several times, but also its architectural appearance and use have changed several times. The original "Anping Castle" is actually the "Geranjah City" built by the Dutch. It is the first Castle established by Dutch colonists in Taiwan. The name of Anping Castle is after the restoration of Taiwan.
