Diksmuide

I visited Diksmuide by train, a city on the IJzer in West Flanders, 25 km from Ostend and 25 km from the French border.


High bridge over the IJzer, (a river) with a checkpoint from the harbor master in front.
The photo you can see is a view of the Beguinage, further into the city.
Reflections of the harbor and yachts can also be seen.

In the background the “IJzertoren”, (a big tower) see earlier photo in my TE gallery.

History of the bridge.

After the First World War, there was first a wooden drawbridge as we still know it today at Knocke Bridge. In 1933 it was replaced by the then Diksmuid firm Verheye by a new iron "high bridge". This in turn was destroyed during the second world war. The current Hoge Brug finally came in 1953 and is therefore 63 years old today. It is crucial for Diksmuide since the closest comparable bridge is the Schoorbakkebrug. Problems with the Hoge Brug would therefore cause a lot of traffic problems for Diksmuide with kilometers of road diversions.

I hope that you enjoy it
