Icon description route Description

What was then, at the end of World War II, the battleground of the Battle of the Scheldt is today the setting of a beautiful bicycle route around Bergen op Zoom. Among other things, you pass a Canadian military cemetery, a lasting reminder of the fallen heroes of WWII.

You will also discover the charming Brabantse Wal and Bergen op Zoom itself. You cycle past Kijk in de Pot, the beautiful city park on the steep edge of the Brabantse Wal and the historic Gevangenpoort, which is the oldest monument in Bergen op Zoom.

Friday, May 10, 2024 by Marleen RoelsThis route was in 1 word TOP! The bike paths were in super good condition, as far as nature is concerned, beautiful views. For the thirsty there are enough cafes with cozy terraces, especially along the Binneneschelde. As for the route: very good, just after route number 36 it says TP but that is number 38 and then just 22 then 25,52 and further the route is correct.
