Walking around Damme to the Northside.

The double enclosure is still clearly visible, but has suffered a lot under the test of time. A large part of the walls is now owned by the vzw "Natuurpunt". The target is to completely revalue the ramparts around Damme. In 2001, part of the outer walls was already restored, and the remains of an old construction were found. This could be the Bruges gate. The city vests have become nature reserves where a number of (even very rare) animal species have found an ideal biotope.
In 2008, a second restored piece was opened to the public (north side). This restoration was part of the European Interreg project "State-Spanish lines" in which various defense works on both the Dutch and Flemish side were revalued. This piece of the ramparts was completely restored to its original state, but fauna and flora have also been given a prominent place; an example of beautiful interaction between cultural-historical heritage and nature. This beauty is not denied the visitor because a walking path shows you the way.
I hope that you enjoy it
