BERGEN OP ZOOM
Bergen op Zoom is a city with history. You can notice this atmosphere in the squares and medieval alleys. You can see it at the beautiful city palace the ‘Markiezenhof’ and at the sturdy city gate in the Lievevrouwestraat, once proclaimed the most beautiful street in the Netherlands.
But Bergen op Zoom is also a nice shopping city. In the various, unique shops you will always find something special. And are you tired of shopping? Then there are plenty of cosy brown cafés, sunny terraces and restaurants of all kinds of flavours. The burgundian Brabant life here is elevated to an art of living.
And do you really want to be surprised? Come and see Bergen op Zoom during carnival. In Bergen op Zoom this is called ‘Vastenavend’ and it is celebrated in a very special way. With its own music and traditions. Get surprised and enjoy it!
