Qasr al-Hosn (en árabe: قصر الحصن) es un fuerte y el edificio de piedra más antiguo de la ciudad de Abu Dabi, la capital de los Emiratos Árabes Unidos. Fue diseñado por Mohammed Al Bastaki y construido en 1761. En la actualidad es parte de la Asociación Cultural de Abu Dabi.
Qasr al-Hosn, también conocido como el Fuerte Blanco o Fuerte Viejo, fue construido en 1761 como una torre de vigilancia para vigilar las crecientes rutas marítimas del área y defender el único pozo de agua dulce en la isla de Abu Dabi. La estructura fue ampliada más tarde hasta alcanzar el tamaño de un pequeño fuerte en 1793 por el entonces gobernante, Shakhbut bin Dhiyab Al Nahyan, y se convirtió en la residencia permanente del jeque. La torre tomó su forma actual después de una importante ampliación a finales de la década de 1930, con la ayuda de los ingresos recibidos por la concesión de la primera licencia petrolera en la capital. Continuó siendo el palacio del emir (de ahí el nombre Qasr al-Hosn, que significa «fortaleza del palacio») y sede del gobierno hasta 1966. Posteriormente, durante unas renovaciones realizadas entre 1976-1983, y pese a que no era su color original, la fortaleza fue pintada de blanco.

The old fort is still being reconstructed and completion date is unknown. The Museum is open and the nicely designed building has an interesting exhibition on the History of Abu Dhabi. It has similarities with the one in Dubai but the content is better and there is more focus on how Abu Dhabi came to be. I recognized many buildings from my youth (1969-1974). Specially liked the milestone picture of the Abu Dhabi Hilton Hotel. If you come by car the museum entrance and parking is behind the barrier on Khalid Bin Waleed Road, pull up to the barrier and the guard will come out, tell him you want to visit the Museum and he will open the barrier. Entry is free, they is a booklet and the toilets are clean. Good place to visit to hear the story of the Liwa oasis residents who built up Abu Dhabi.

Full marks to the exhibition. Tells you everything about Abu Dhabi... right from 17th century to the future of island city. Use of technology while showing history is adorable. Free to attend Highly recommended for residents and tourists

Al Hosn is a small part of UAE traditional life before discovering oil. It shows many exciting and rich traditions and has very informative video displays. It opens around mid February time and a very nice place to see.

The fort is not functional. It's in construction. The musuem is nice but very small. Not worth the time

The exhibition was beautiful. Don't be deceived by the construction signs because the museum is in side of that. As a resident here, I learned a lot and now have a greater appreciation for Abu Dhabi.

Good flag of Germany or German Flag(German: Flagge Deutschlands) is a tricolourconsisting of three equal horizontal bands displaying the national colours of Germany: black, red, and gold (German: Schwarz-Rot-Gold). The flag was first adopted as the national flag of modern Germany in 1919, during the short-lived Weimar Republic to 1933.

The black-red-gold tricolour's first appearance anywhere in a German-ethnicity sovereign state within what today comprises Germany occurred in 1778, and achieved prominence during the 1848 Revolutions. The short-lived Frankfurt Parliament of 1848–1850 proposed the tricolour as a flag for a united and democratic German state under a constitutional monarchy. With the formation of the short-lived Weimar Republic after World War I, the tricolour was adopted as the national flag of Germany. Sixteen years later following World War II, the tricolour was again designated as the flag of both West and East Germany divided states in 1949. The two flags were identical until 1959, when the East German flag was augmented with the coat of arms of East Germany. Since reunification on 3 October 1990, the black-red-gold tricolour has become the flag of a reunified Federal Republic of Germany. After the Austro-Prussian War in 1866, the Prussian-dominated North German Confederation adopted a tricolour of black-white-red as its flag. This flag later became the flag of the German Empire, formed following the unification of Germany under the Prussian king who became emperor in 1871, and was used until 1918 with the end of the First World War. Black, white, and red were reintroduced as the German national colours with the establishment of Nazi Germanyunder Adolf Hitler in 1933, replacing German republican colours with imperial colours until the end of World War II. The colours of the modern flag are associated with the republican democracy first proposed in 1848, formed after World War I, and represent German unity and freedom.During the Weimar Republic, the black-red-gold colours were the colours of the democratic, centrist, and republican political parties, as seen in the name of Reichsbanner Schwarz-Rot-Gold, formed by members of the Social Democratic, the Centre, and the Democratic parties to defend the republic against extremists on the right and left.
