Weert (in Limburgs Wieërt) is a city in the Dutch province of Limburg and the urban core of the same-named municipality. The municipality of Weert is bordered by North Brabant and Belgium, so the city is also called the gate of Limburg. Weert received city rights in 1414 and currently has nearly 50000 inhabitants.
Through thorough remediation in the decades after World War II, the old city center has undergone a thorough metamorphosis. It does not matter that there is still something to see in Weert, including the Sint Maarten church (which is found in the top 100 of the most important monuments in the Netherlands), the monastery of the Sisters Birgittinessen in the Maasstraat, the Paterskerk and the Gemeentemuseum de Tiendschuur. There are also several mills in the vicinity of the city including St. Anna in Weert itself.
As it claims a city of such magnitude and as a care center of a care area in which nearly 100,000 people live, Weert is often seen as a nightlife center. Although Weert does not have mega disco's, every week, many younger people come to Weert to go there. Almost all nightlife for young people is located around one square. All important disco and cafés are located around the Oelemarkt square. But in the square itself, outdoor activities are held for young people during the summer months. There is a guarded bicycle storage room within walking distance and there is also police surveillance around the square around the weekend. But outside of disco's and cafés there are also many restaurants located in Weert. There is a wide range of restaurants, from simple but cozy to top restaurants. In Weert there are also some ice cream parlors and other things in which sweets are sold. It is also possible to go to the cinema or theater in Weert.
