1. Koepoort

Show sight on map

The Koepoort in Middelburg is, of the eight city gates once present, the only one that has been preserved in its entirety. The gate, built in the late Louis XIV style, was designed by architect Jan Pieter van Baurscheidt the Younger and city architect Jan de Munck. The gate was built in the first half of the eighteenth century and was the successor of several earlier cow gates. Where the earlier gates served as defensive works, the new gate mainly served as an ornamental gate.

5. Stadhuis

Show sight on map

Middelburg Town Hall is situated at the market of Middelburg, Zeeland. It is considered one of the finest Gothic buildings in the Netherlands. Construction began in 1452 and was supervised by several generations of the Flemish family of architects Keldermans. Construction was completed in 1520, the town hall received a facade with Gothic windows, red-white shutters, smaller turrets and twenty-five statues of Zeeland's counts and countesses. The building has one main tower, which the Middelburgers call 'Malle Betje'. This mocking name comes from the fact it used to run behind the town's other clock tower, the 'lange Jan'. A meat-auction or 'meathall' used to be situated in the building, which had a separate entrance. Whereas the town hall itself is still used for weddings, since 2004 its spaces are in use by the University College Roosevelt, the local university. The former meat hall has been in use as an exhibition space for the SBKM since 1980.
