Surrounded by palm trees, Nakhal Fort offers insight into the history of the region and scenic views of the plain and the town. Named after an ancient province, the site dates back to pre-Islamic times, and the 17th-century stronghold was built to protect important trading routes. The gateway and the round towers were added in the mid-19th century, and the area underwent complete renovation in 1990. See traditional furnishings and handicrafts in the rooms, as well as a collection of historical guns at the museum. The indoor seating area at the top--with oriental rugs and colorful cushions lined against the wall--offers a quiet break from the sun. You will need to climb many stairs to tour the fort.

Im Gegensatz zu ander... more »The Nakhal Fort is one of Oman's most famous and popular forts. Making the location and especially the views make the fort a unique experience. Unlike other fortresses in Oman, this one offers little interesting inside and yet is very clear. This is where the big buses arrive and you have to be lucky not to be able to look at the small fortress with a hundred others. The entrance fee costs as usually 1 OMR! The view alone is worth a visit.
Aufgrund schöner Beschreibungen und Fotos, fuhren wir mit Burg-Fans hin....leider etwas karg. Wenig Erklärungen/ Beschreibungen. Die Fort in Nizwa ist das Geld wirklich wert! more »Due to beautiful descriptions and photos, we drove with castle fans ... Unfortunately, a bit of barren. Little explanatory/descriptions. The fort in Nizwa is really worth the money!
It's a nice fort. The view is good. I like it coz you can go inside when it's blistering hot outside as the Fort is really cool inside. The rooms are well decorated and informative. One suggestion would be that more English content could be added for the non Arabic speakers. The entry fee is a nominal amount too.
Outstanding and in incredible condition. Just got to be done. There is so much to see and the views are amazing. The atmosphere is amazing it's like stepping back many centuries.
