Jip and Janneke

Two of the most famous Dutch characters are ... black!
Jip and Janneke, created by Annie M.G. Schmidt are two little children who have many adventures in ever so many books. Drawings by Fiep Westendorp.
Schmidt was born in Zaltbommel.

Town center

The town center is a medieval fortification. Only this gate remains. Everything is walkable which makes this a pleasant place for a days outing.

    Op je aardige Zaltbommel pagina heb je (inmiddels) foutieve informatie over het ontbreken van een VVV-kantoor. tegenwoordig (in ieder geval gisteren) was er in het souterrain van het oude stadhuis een Toeristisch Informatie Punt (TRIP) gevestigd.

    Anke, it's your next lovely page! Do they want to sell the Town Hall? With or without the people of the Town Hall?
