The Markiezenhof

Just a few minutes’ walk away, in the centre of Bergen op Zoom, is the late Gothic city palace, the Markiezenhof. This palace was built in the fifteenth century, and for almost three centuries it was home to the Lords of Bergen op Zoom and later to the Marquises. You can still experience the splendour of this noble palace in the period rooms and gardens. There are also regularly changing exhibitions and in the attic you will find the fairground museum.

A visit through this expansive palace creates a picture of the history of the city and region. 

In 2009, the halls of the city & region museum were refurbished. History and heritage are dealt with through the core themes ‘seeing & experiencing’, ‘doing & learning’ and ‘searching & finding’ and are presented through a story that takes the visitor along: 

the construction and restoration history of the complex;
the history of its noble inhabitants;
administration and justice over the centuries;
the trade and fortress history of the city and region;
the industrial history of the city;
the uniqueness and uniqueness of Bergen op Zoom such as Lent, Processions and Weather Fishing;
migration history;
