    Favorite thing: The main church of Zaltbommel is named after Saint Maarten. A church stood on this spot since the 11th century. This current church was built in the 15th century and was a lively religious center with monks living around the church.

    Favorite thing: Zaltbommel exists since the 9th century. Bome-loo indicates a place with trees (boom) higher than the surrounding area. 'Zalt' was added, probably because salt was being traded here. In the year 999, Zaltbommel acquired the right to mint its own coins and in 1231 it got city rights. This means that the city could build reinforcements, which you can see on the city map.

    The city street plan has not changed since 1500 AD

    City Weigh House

    by ATLC Written Aug 24, 2008
    Zaltbommel City Weigh House

    Favorite thing: This is the City Weigh House (Stadswaag) built in 1797. It was used as such well into the 20th century. Goods from the region would be brought here to be weighed and then traded.

    The statue is a lady holding scales.

    Walk about the fortifications

    Favorite thing: The old moat is overgrown and looks more like a broad grassy path. We enjoyed the walk, munching on a fish snack from the fish stall just outside the city center.

    Favorite thing: The Tourist Information office used to be located here (road signs still say as much) but it is closed. An alternative is to go to the Maarten Van Rossem museum (see Things to Do tip).
