Town trips in Zeeland
City break in Middelburg
Middelburg is rightly called the small Amsterdam of Zeeland. Here you’ll find the most listed buildings of all Zeeuwse towns. For starters there’s the splendid Abdij. Or the Oostkerk. It is a stunning town, with its picturesque streets, the vibrant harbour, noble town houses and the trendy drink and dining options, and shops. Whether you like shopping, museums, sailing or culinary surprises, Middelburg will charm your heart.
Visit the one and only Sjakie's Chocolade museum, drink coffee in one of the best bookshops in the Netherlands, enjoy a good glass of wine in the Vliegendt Hert winebar and savour culinary delights in one of the numerous top restaurants.
Goes is indeed the fashion epicentre of Zeeland. It is host to the annual Goes Couture Fashion Show, where internationally renowned couturiers display their splendid designs. And it is host, day in day out, to a rich range of shops. From well-known chain brands to bijou boutiques. A shopper’s wonderland indeed.
And when you’re finally done with your shopping, find a perch on one of the great terraces, harbour side or amid the bustling market square. Be sure to visit the Maria Magdalena church and Slot Oostende; a downtown mini-castle incorporating a hotel, restaurant, café and a brewery all in one!
Town trip in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen
Zeeuws-Vlaanderen is well known as the most exuberant part of Zeeland, and you can literally savour our love of the good life in its towns. We would really encourage you to combine your trip with visits to several other places. It would make a truly special stay in this southernmost part of the province.
Stay a while, for example, in the sophisticated Cadzand, visit the splendour of the ancient fortress town Hulst and go shopping in Sluis. Eat delicious fish in Breskens and be impressed by the sunken polder of the Land van Saeftinghe.
