Continuing Along Der Atlantik Wall

As we continue our tour through the Nazi propaganda filmstrip, Der Atlantik Wall, we start to see more images of military installations.  Once again, based only on certain clues from various photos in the filmstrip, these pictures may be of locations in Holland.  If anyone recognizes these scenes, I would be really interested to know what they are.  The first image appears to show a medieval fortification at a harbor or port, with some civilians and German military personnel at left. 
The next photo has a more generic location, but it shows more military activity, with German soldiers scrambling around dunes on a beach.
