1. 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.

Earthquake Mill is a (former) flour mill for earthquake work in the Dutch city of Zhongbao. It is a round stone bracket, built in 1728, and is the oldest factory in the Middle Ages. After a severe storm in November 1940 and subsequent neglect, the factory fell into decline. Beginning in 1955, the masonry was restored when the factory was owned by the commune. After recovering in 2000-2001, the factory became more honed again: in the earthquake, there were two pairs of 16-day labor and one pair of 16-day blue bricks.

The port was built in the first half of the eighteenth century and is the successor of several former azaleas. Where the former gate served as a fortification, the new gate was mainly used to decorate the gate.
