Description

There was a lot of peat in the area around Zevenbergen because it was connected to the mainland of South Holland by dikes. During the 13th century, peat from the sea was increasingly flooded. Also due to peat extraction. Salinization was the result of this. Salt production was a profitable export product for the city. After flowering, however, Zevenbergen fell into disrepair. During the great St. Elisabeth flood in 1421, all embanked polders were destroyed, so that Zevenbergen suddenly became an island. Nevertheless, the reclamation at the beginning of the 16th century resulted in an upgrading with an important role for sugar beet cultivation with no fewer than four sugar factories between 1858 and 1987.

The Zuiderwaterlinie is the oldest, longest and most used of all Dutch waterlines. A unique chain of 11 fortified towns and their environs, connected by the typical Dutch story of defending with water. From Bergen op Zoom to Grave you will now find Brabant cosiness against the backdrop of a rich history. Enjoy the cozy historic fortified cities, visit the sturdy fortresses or relax in the special nature.

The Zuiderwaterlinie walking path has been plotted over the Brabant walking junction system. The walking route is recognizable by the green-and-yellow signage with the Zuiderwaterlinie symbol. The total length of the walking path is 290 kilometers, but you can also choose to walk shorter partial routes.
