Did you know that the interior of the 15th century Town Hall in Middelburg was completely damaged during a fire when the city was attacked in WWII?

Only the walls and the Gothic facade resisted the flames and it took many years to restore the Town Hall to its original glory.

Locals like to call the tower Malle Betje (‘Silly Betty’) because the clock is always running behind time compared with Lange Jan, another landmark tower in Middelburg.
