City centre Brandevoort - Brandevoort
The city centre of De Veste is part of the Vinex district of Brandevoort. It is designed as a fortified town and the picturesque little gates connect to courtyards that are used as parking spaces. The little tower is part of a school building, whereas in the past it would have belonged to a church or a castle. Even the canals are modern like the rest of the city centre. Some of the houses are mansions and many of the streets have nostalgic-sounding names. The street signs bear the 21st-century year. On Fridays, between 14:00 and 18:00, you can visit a small organic market under the roof of the cast-iron market hall.
