Rijsbergen in 1866
|Population (2007)||6,255 |
In the territory of the former municipality of Rijsbergen was one of the most important border crossings of the country: Hazeldonk. Hazeldonk was ceded in 1997 to Breda.
In the town used to be an AC (Aanmeldcentrum, i.e. Asylum Request Center).
Until 1997 Rijsbergen was an independent municipality, after which it was added to Zundert.
The skyline of Rijsbergen is dominated by the neo-Gothic Roman Catholic church of Saint Bavo, which was built in 1918 as a replacement of a smaller fourteenth-century church. The church is situated in the town centre and is flanked by the former town hall, which has been transformed into a museum.
