From Moses bridge to a town full of monuments

Closer to history and nature in West-Brabant

A weekend trip with a combination of a historical town, countryside and activities that let your heart rate go down - or up. Then the region Bergen op Zoom, Kalmthoutse Heide heath and Roosendaal is the place for you. Walk across borders, sleep in the oldest hotel in the Netherlands or let the adrenaline flow through your body with a free fall at Indoor Skydive.

Make your stay complete by visiting one of the restaurants or spend the night at one of the accommodations. Want to discover even more of this region? Then don’t miss: Island hopping in De Biesbosch and strolling along historical sites and From Royal Breda to Little Rome in one day.


Bergen op Zoom is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands and that is reflected in every corner of the city. Walking through narrow alleyways and old squares you will discover the many monuments and after a climb up De Peperbus tower you will have a beautiful view over the city. Wander through the streets that open onto the charming Grote Markt and discover beautiful spots such as Markiezenhof, the oldest city palace in the Netherlands.

Are you looking for an adventurous day out? Have fun at Treetop Adventure Park Brabantse Wal: challenging bridges, sturdy lianas and crazy zip lines! Are you staying the night? Then the oldest city hotel in the Netherlands, Grand Hotel de Draak, is a must. Or bring your own house on wheels and stay the night in peace at family campsite Uit en Thuis

Tip: along the border with Zeeland and Belgium you will find a stunning natural park: De Brabantse Wal. The landscape is known for its natural height differences, with transitions from clay to sand, from forest to heathland and from dry to wet. At Fort de Roovere in Halsteren you'll find the Mozesbrug (Moses Bridge) where you can walk through the water while keeping your feet dry. On this spot you will also find the Pompejus tower, one of the many lookout towers of Brabant.

After a drive south of less than 30 minutes you will find Grenspark De Zoom - Kalmthoutse Heide, one of North Brabant’s four National Parks. Grenspark De Zoom - Kalmthoutse Heide is located on the border of the Netherlands and Belgium. The area is full of beautiful contrasts: fens, sand drifts and pine forests.
