The fortified city

<font face=verdana color=darkgreen size=3>The Great War, the wars against England, the French Revolution, ... all these turbulent times had their influence on the culture and the cultural-historical inheritance of Bergen op Zoom.
This city gate is one of the remainders of the fortification. So is the rampart at the Ravelijn "Op den Zoom".

Carnival

<font face=verdana color=darkgreen size=3>Carnival is very important for Bergen op Zoom. They start in November already with the first parades and they last until the real carnaval time, 6 weeks before Easter. Then Bergen op Zoom parties for a whole week.
