Bergen op Zoom
The winter Carnival in
Bergen op Zoom
is superb, a true folk festival of the highest order, lasting several days, highly recommended. On a Fastavond you can squint your eyes and imagine you are back in the 1700s, as the bands march about, and the colorfully dressed villagers sing and celebrate. This area is very family-oriented, and their Carnival is very child friendly, almost Disneyesque.
This small city is really really beautiful! Enjoy walking through the old streets and take a sit in the Grote Market, the central square of
-- full of life during the day and with some pubs and street musicians at night. It's peaceful, but not boring!
I lived in
as a child. It was so wonderful, quaint, and friendly. I can't wait to take my children to see how non-Americans live.
The best thing about
(that isn't inhaled) are all the cheap falafel places. Look for one with a bar that lets you add your own toppings.
… This is a great little beach town in the Netherlands, and close to the city. It's got a beautiful beach and great nightlife.
… I did visit your lovely town in 1968. Love it. I will be coming again for a visit later this year
… Best place in the world!
… This is a nice town, with small hill and woods.
