Koewacht is known for its flax culture, there is also a museum in which the processing of flax flax central. Its location on the border gives a unique character to the village and is a palette of blue and green as the flax fields around the village in bloom.
The name of the village refers to the 'cows wait.
The geographical position on the border has to do with the emergence of Koewacht during the Eighty Years' War. In 1586 the Belgian part belonged to the Catholic Spaniards. From Axel were regularly organized raids against the Spanish territory. In order to protect the border, a series of forts made: the Line of Communication between Holly and Sas van Gent. Of some forts are found only traces in the landscape back
but the Fort Masereel grew into a residential area that is now called Koewacht. The fort was predominantly inhabited by French mercenaries what the French words in the local dialect explains. At the site of the former fort is now the church of St. James and Philipus. The oldest part (the tower) dates from the eighteenth century. For the present stone church was a wooden building where nothing is left. That location for the fort is not arbitrary. In the sixteenth century the whole area is very humid and the fort is situated on the highest part and therefore remained dry. It guarded the access to Moerbeke Polder Polder and Ried.
As a result of the Belgian secession from the United Kingdom of the Netherlands in 1830, the village was divided into a Belgian and Dutch section.
