In addition, one is one to the oldest towns of the Netherlands. Their origins go back very back in the time, until the time at which it was borders of the Linge river.

Every year, during the second weekend of September, the Fruitcorso is developed. At present, it is accompanied by the Appelpop, one of the more important recitales of music MGP of the Netherlands. The entrance is gratuitous.
