Bat reserve "the old town walls of Damme"

Location: Kerkstraat (at the church), 8340 Damme
Accessibility: not accessible

During the construction of the 17th century town walls around Damme, casemates were built.  These were enclosed storage places for ammunition.  In one of these casemates (Kazemat Onze-Lievevrouwepoort), a colony of bats has found shelter.  This casemate can be found there where the Kerkstraat crosses the town walls (between the bridge over the Zuidervaart and the church).  It's a protected area and not open to the public.
