Back in time

past and present come together

The Langstraat has a rich history, which you can experience in many places. Pay a visit to Heusden Vesting, where you go back to the 17th century, while walking on the fortifications, through the cobbled streets or along the beautiful inner harbor. In Loon op Zand you imagine yourself as a real lord or lady over the historic country estate around Het Witte Kasteel. At the beginning of the 19th century, De Langstraat grew into the center of the shoe and leather industry. Villas of shoe manufacturers, tannery complexes that have been given new uses, the Schoenenkwartier and various walking and cycling routes remind us of this. In short: past and present come together in De Langstraat.
