Bergen op Zoom Travel Guide: 67 reviews and 241 photos

Jennie consulting our map, me on bike just outside the tiny village Calfven between Woensdrecht and Ossendrecht. I'm wearing the shirt that Robert, the tailor of Mvumi, made for me many, many years ago.

Huijbergen, time for some cappuccinos. Our visit coincided with the annual fair.

Huijbergen, wind mill "Johanna" (1862). The mill can be visited, but we were just passing through.

Border marker no. 246 on the Dutch-Belgian border. The actual border is very close by, but a road happens to run across the precise spot. When the road was constructed, people initially buried the border marker underneath, it was only recently dug up again and moved some ten or fifteen meters to the edge of the road. To mark the festivities, the Dutch fired salute shots (in the direction of Belgium!)

Roadside cross opposite the border marker no. 246.

Where the province of Zeeland meets the sand dunes (up to 20 meters tall) of the province of Noord-Brabant you'll find the watch tower "Kraaijenberg". Apparently an excellent spot for bird watching.

High rise appartment buildings next to the water, Bergen op Zoom Binnenschelde.
