The Markiezenhof dates back to the late middle ages. Today, its many rooms are filled with beautiful art.
The rulers of the Markiezenhof
The Markiezenhof in Bergen op Zoom has had many rulers. In the middle of the fifteenth century, two dukes, Jan II and Jan III, had the existing medieval courtyard extended to the large Markiezenhof. A real marquis came to live there in 1533, when the son of Jan III was given this title by the emperor. Many marquises followed, each leaving their own mark by adding new buildings or renovating old ones. In 1795, the Marquisate came to an end because the French added the Netherlands to theirRepublic.
The marquises may not have survived, but the building itself did. Today, it serves as a platform for various art exhibitions as well as for a permanent collection. Enjoy the art and wander through the building’s many spaces!
