Castle OOSTKERKE Damme 2020 a bicycle trip during corona time, no stops only for take a picture, no people and up a mask.

The castle of the Lords of Oostkerke was located here. In 1089 the first mention was made of a Lord of Oostkerke, Dodinus van Oostkerke. From the 10th or 11th century there was already a building on this site, possibly a wooden keep. In the 13th century there was a brick keep on a rectangular plan. Den Hove van Oostkerke was first mentioned in writing in 1358. In the 14th century, a brick castle was built with an upper court, which contained the actual feudal house, and a courtyard. The supreme court was walled and had three towers. The courtyard was flanked by two large towers and included a pigeon tower and an ice house.
