Buren

Buren is a municipality and a city in the Betuwe region in the Netherlands. It is also a historical county, with the Dutch Monarch still holding the title "Count of Buren".GeographyThe river Korne flows through Buren.Population centresPopulation centers include: Aalst Asch Beusichem Buren Eck en Wiel Erichem Ingen Kerk-Avezaath Lienden Maurik Ommeren Ravenswaaij Rijswijk Zoelen ZoelmondThe city of BurenThe earliest known reference to the settlement dates from 772. The castle built by the Lords of Buren is first mentioned in 1298. The town was granted city rights in 1395 by Sir Alard IV of Buren, which led to the construction of a defensive wall and a moat. Significant parts of these still exist. In 1492 the region was promoted to a county (i.e. ruled by a count), but due to its isolated position it never became very important economically. By 1574 the previously Catholic parish church of Saint Lambert had already become Calvinist Reformed Protestant.
