Zonnebeke also has it's own museum. one that explanes about the history of this village and it's surroundings. Special attention in this museum, that is also partly outside in wonderful old houses, to the two abbeys that dominated this vicinity in medieval times. They were founded around 1100 and raided by the independance fighters in 1580 (80-years war against Spanish Habsburgians). Zonnebeke had a rich history but a lot has been lost in the first world war. Nothing was standing up in this area after the fighting stopped.
