    Culemborgse Poort

    by OlafS Updated May 23, 2003
    Buren: Culemborgse Poort

    The only surviving town gate is the Culemborgse Poort ("Culemborg gate", named after the nearby town of Culemborg), which is a simple building that originates from the 14th century, although it was often altered. The facade to the side of the town that we see here was newly erected in 1816. Inside the building is a museum of old farmer's carts.

    Old town hall

    Buren: old town hall

    The former town hall dates from the 16th century, but was rebuilt in 1612, when among others the tower was added to the roof. In 1739 another rebuilt resulted in the entrance in Louis XIV-style. It's now a museum about the relationship between Buren and the royal family, Museum Buren & Oranje.

    I was standing on the wall when I made this pic.

    I liked the landscape just outside Buren, behind the wall so much that I decide to make some pictures from it too, to show you how beautiful the Netherlands can be.
