Adegem 20km of Bruges 25 km of Ghent


Raverschoot is a Belgian hamlet on the border of Adegem (Maldegem) and Eeklo.

The main street was part of the Antwerp Heirweg that connected Bruges with Antwerp. Together with the more recent Balgerhoeke, the church was part of the Adegem parish. Raverschoot was a glory and had a fortress that was burned down in 1127, after the murder of Charlemagne. When new residential areas were found to be viable, Countess Johanna of Constantinople also gave them a new status, which she recorded in 1240 in a city hallmark. Half of Raverschoot, for example, was added to the Keure van Eeklo.
Since 1858, Raverschoot has been on the Schipdonkkanaal, and there is also a bridge there. This was destroyed during the Second World War and restored in 1952. At the bridge is a monument placed in 1992-1994 in memory of the fallen "Carabiniers" during the 18-day campaign in 1940.
