Can I walk?

by maber

I`m going to Vlissingen in june to visit my boyfriend. I`m planning to come a day earlier without him knowing it as a surprise. The thing is, I`ve never been at the trainstation, and I wonder if it is possible to walk from the station and to the Scheldestraat area? Is there any busses? Taxi? Grateful for all help I can get :)

You start at Stationsplein in Vlissingen and head towards Prins Hendrikweg for 33 yd.
Leave Stationsplein and turn right into Prins Hendrikweg. Stay on for 1060 yd
Leave Prins Hendrikweg and head straightforward onto Paul Krugerstraat. Stay on for 1161 yd.
Leave Paul Krugerstraat and turn left into Scheldestraat.

Here's the map:

A much nicer walk is to go over the locks to the Prins Heinkade an walk along the dike and the windmill to the center of Vlissingen.

The Walstraat is a shopping street and you can go to the Scheldestraat from there via the Hellingbaan street.

Walking is just half an hour. There's a bus at the station, but you have all the time to walk.

A word of warning: There is some drug dealing at the Scheldestraat. Better only walk there during daytime. Use your common street sense!

Travel Tips for Vlissingen

Frans Naerebout

by pieter_jan_v

The Frans Naerebout statue at the South side of the Bellamy Park honors the godfather of the Vlissingen Seapilots. He lived from 1748 till 1818 and was a VOC-seapilot guiding the ships through the Schelde river delta to and from the Nothsea.
Frans made name by the rescue of 80 seamen from the sinking VOC ship "De Woestduyn".
Later in 1788 he rescued the "Zuiderburg" with 400 people onboard.

Even more snacks at the Boulevard

by pieter_jan_v about Nollehoofd

The Nollehoofd appears to be like the other snackbars at the Boulevard: a small shop with Patat (fries) and other snacks and a terras.
I think I had my last food there. The fries were not completely baked (probably went from the freezer into the frying pan) and the fish was pre-fabricated.
The floor was greasy, but to my surprise at the counter there was a tap at the left with a plain towel. None.

St. Jacobskerk

by 36waterfalls

The original early-gothic structure dates back to 1308. Over the centuries the church expanded and became an important beacon for the ships approaching Vlissingen.
Fire destroyed it in 1911, but it has been fully restored and is still in service for the protestant community today.
In Summer the tower is open to climb.

Visitors: July/Aug/Sept, Wed/Thur/Fri/Sat 13.30-17

Sunday Services check website.

De Glooiing

by 36waterfalls

Besides the boulevard with its restaurants and traffic, there's another walkway before reaching the sea. No traffic's allowed here and it's a great area for a quiet stroll.

This concrete promenade called The Glooiing wasn't always there.
When in 1953 The Big Flood broke dykes and dunes, safety measures had to be taken. (see also my Neeltje Jans page)
The Glooiing was part of the Delta Plan: a huge Dutch engineering scheme to fight the water. By putting up an extra 'beach' of concrete, waves are broken before reaching land.

At the moment work is in progress on a small part, but you'll still be able to walk The Glooiing for over a mile.

Vlissingen beach

by travelthrough

"Vlissingen to Dishoek"

I visited Zeeland, one of the most charming regions in the South of the Netherlands, in summer to
visit a friend. Especially the beaches along the sea were
beautiful and I liked Vlissingen a lot. The town had been destroyed
by floods and built up again with
a modern Boulevard. Now you find restaurants and blocks of modern
appartments along the Boulevard.
Walking along the sanddunes opposite the sandy beach, you
will reach Dishoek, a nice town
famous for pancakes. Farther
up you can reach Westende,
famous for traditional markets
and customs!
