Surfing in Vlissingen.

by Dsurfryder252

I am planning a surf trip through Europe. I am flying into Schipol then heading south to the town of Vlissingen to see where my name started. I share the same last name as that great Dutch admiral that was born there. I was wondering how hard it is to travel around with surfboards while im in The Netherlands? If the trains let me take my boardbag? The Fee's? Places to stay? I will be by myself the whole time. And the most important questions. The waves and where to surf? I will definetly check out Domburg. After here Im off to France,Spain,Portugal, then to Morocco. Ive traveled through other countries but never Europe. Any insight would be helpful. Thanks

ah, Michiel de Ruyter!
Be sure to buy yourself a box of chocolate sprinkles (hagelslag) by the brand name of De Ruyter. A typical Dutch thing to eat on your slice of bread at breakfast.

The surf in NL is not very impressive. There's more kitesurfing and diving going on around these regions.

Domburg: http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/2bf0c/70c8f/ (my page is more history focused than sports focused though).

Thanks. Ive seen video of some descent days at Domburg. I know its the North Sea, not the Ocean. But seeing as im gonna be there in the dead of winter id figure there be something kicked up. And as im gonna have my boards with me I might as well try to surf. And, I will definetly try the chocolate things. Aloha

In Portugal the most famous spots are in Peniche and Ericeira, check www.penichesurfcamp.com and www.surfericeira.com, for some insights.

The famous Michiel de Ruyter statue at Vlissingen is being restored; it's not at its usual location for a while (we still have pictures on our Vlissingen pages).

The general rules for the train only speak of hand luggage (there are special bicycle tickets!)
Hand luggage may not occupy a seat, not cause any from of abstacle to other passengers.

For the remainder luggage is covered by the rules described in the general treaty of European Railroad Companies (COTIF).

Travel Tips for Vlissingen

Tide coming in

by 36waterfalls

Work was in progress when the tide came in. Cranes had to get moving really fast.
To make sure the water doesn't rush in or simply to break waves, there are all sorts of barriers in the Westerschelde. At low tide you can walk them, but better be quick when the tide comes in!

Modern Architecture II

by 36waterfalls

The contrast couldn't be bigger between walking the historic city centre, then strolling the boulevard.
Going from very old to very new in the blink of an eye.
Like all around the world, high-rise residentials is what shapes a boulevard these days.
The ones in Vlissingen are pretty arty though...take a look and judge for yourself!

Arsenaal

by 36waterfalls

The Arsenaal is a huge family attraction.
Enter a world of ships and pirates! Visit the aquariums or enjoy the view from the top of the adjacent tower.
The Arsenaal is wheelchair-friendly. A restaurant and toystore are on site.

Opening times: daily 10-19
Entrance fee: €13

Belgische Loodswoningen

by 36waterfalls

The pilotage always played an important part in Vlissingen's shipping industry.
These Art Deco / Jugendstil houses belonged to a Belgium family of piloteers and date from 1910. They're under heavy restoration at the moment.
The ones in the picture have been done up nicely and carry the names of the pilot's children: Villa Blanche, Villa Yvonne, Villa Louise and Villa Mario.
Not open to the public (unless you have business here).

Windorgel (WindChime)

by 36waterfalls

At the far end of the 2 km boulevard of Vlissingen you'll find this amazing work of art.
The Windchime is made of bamboo, which has holes carved in it, so the wind can sing her song. You'll hear it best when you stand inside the ring of bamboo.
It wasn't too windy when I was here, but it did the trick very well. Imagine what happens when a storm comes along!
