In the twentieth century, Turnhout history differs little from the rest of Western Europe: the first world war, economic revival, then the great crisis and the second world war. After the wars, Turnhout became a modern city, not much different from many other small cities: the castle now houses a court of law, there is a McDonald's opposite the medieval St. Peter's church, and Carta Mundi mainly exports Magic cards. But on the other hand, the beguinage still houses one beguine, market days are still on Saturdays, and the roads are still paved with cobblestones.
