The village is separated from Kapelle by a railroad. The two villages share a train station.

Previously the village had a port, which was connected with the Western Scheldt. In 1717, this silted up, and has since been transformed into a market.[citation needed]

A monastery named "Jerusalem" once stood on a rise east of Biezelinge. The foundations have been examined, but are no longer intact. The place has been used for agriculture for generations by the family De Roo.[citation needed]
