    ZALTBOMMEL JEWISH CEMETERY

    Graveyards in general, interest me. Read all the names, you get a feel for the people who lived in a town. There must've been a lively Jewish community here in Zaltbommel. Unfortunately there was no time to look into it further.

    ZALTBOMMEL JEWISH CEMETERY

    These graves are not too old, they go back to the last century. Jews are always buried in their own cemetery, in any case never mixed with other graves. So there they are, behind the hedge at the back.

    Jip & Janneke

    Jip & Janneke in Zaltbommel

    Jip & Janneke are the most famous Dutch childrens book characters ever. It is them who teach young kids how to read. You could compare it to teh popularity of the cat in the hat. One of teh reasons it is so popular is the drawings by Fiep Westendorp.She was born right here in Zaltbommel. To commemorate that, teh city has put up a statue of Jip & Janneke at the river Waal.

    Gutter Ghosts in Zaltbommel

    Beware of the gutter ghosts. Gutter ghosts is the translation for the Dutch term Gootspoken. They are an art project commemorating the old professions. If you walk in teh city look up a couple of times and you might find one or two of the statuettes sitting on top of the houses.

    Herb Garden in Zaltbommel

    If you walk along the old fortifications you'll come across a couple of nice gardens. This is an herb garden where they grow several herbs for medicinal reasons. There are some 70 different herbs in this garden.
    The garden itself is built on the site of the former Maria Magdalena Convent. The garden is opened every day from 9 in the morning to 8 in the evening.
