  • Schouwen-Duiveland

    Schouwen-Duiveland is the most northern part of the province of Zeeland. This area is connected to the main land with a bridge and three dams. The “Brouwersdam” and the “Grevelingendam” on the North side, and the “Stormvloedkering” (storm flood barrier) and the “Zeelandbridge” on the Southside.On the Westside (Westhoek) of Schouwen-Duiveland, you...

  • Luctor et Emergo (Ik worstel en kom...

    If you're in Zeeland, maybe you will hear or see the slogan: 'Luctor et Emergo.' This means 'I struggle and I emerge..', which has, dispite what it looks like and as many may think, nothing to do with the struggle agains the water. The lion you see trying to climbing out of the water (picture) is a fighting dutch lion, who restised -under...

Vlissingen and Middelburg lies on Goeree- Overflakkee. Middelburg: A medium town with a very pretty centre.

  • Sea with land or land with sea

    Zeeland will always be bonded with the water. It carries her in it's name. Through out the year, it’s been an enemy but also a friend. The Zeelanders crosses the waters to distanced lands and played a important role in many countries history. But the water also killed many inhabitants of Zeeland during the century’s. The last big example was in...

  • Zeeland/Zealand

    Did you know that New Zealand is named after this Province, The "Z" of Zealand still reminds us to that. In the 16th and 17th century People of the Netherlands and Sealand where sailors. They sailed around the world and trade a lot. This province of the Netherlands is already very old. As you can see in my "Voc" travelogue, Zeeland played an...

  • Lovely villages

    Many villages in Zeeland are really lovely, and are small communities centralised around a church. Notice the circular road. A lot of villages in Zeeland are a "Kerkringdorp" literally translated as "a village with a ring around the church". The street goes all around the church.The best way, to get the feeling of these small villages is by bike....

  • Tholen - The Flower island

    The island of Tholen is a very colourful island, especially between May and October. Driving or cycling around the island you will see acres and acres of fields, covered in flowers. All the different types and colours make it very picturesque. The flowers are at their best during the months of July and August.

  • Agriculture

    Zeeland is a province of agriculture.Typical for the landscape are the fields with a single farmhouse often hidden behind a dike. Most people live in the small villages, but the farmers have their land outside of the villages. That's why, driving or biking from one place to another, you will only notice large farms here and there.

  • Landscape

    This pic shows the typical Zeeland landscape. Zeeland has lots of "Polders" (a piece of land surrounded by dikes) and high trees, mostly poplars.

  • Typical Dutch scenery

    It's not something typical for Zeeland but for the whole of the Netherlands. I like those wind mills. They give an extra touch to the landscape and a good opportunity for a nice pic.

  • On the road

    It is fun to drive or bike along the smaller roads. Many of these roads are situated on top of a dike and surrounded by high trees on both sides. From those roads, you'll have a great view over the landscape.

  • Enjoying the sun

    Zeeland has lot of opportunities for sunbathing. There is the Northsea in the west, but there are also two major rivers: the Western Scheldt and the Eastern Scheldt where it is nice to enjoy the sun. Just follow the road along one of the rivers and you will see where there is place for sunbathing. Mostly areas with a large green zone or even a...

  • Zeeuws Vlaanderen

    The province can be roughly divided in two parts. First, there are the islands that form the actual Zeeland. The second part is Zeeuws Vlaanderen, the most southern part of the province. This originally was part of the duchy of Flanders but was occupied by Holland in the 17th century. In the 19th century the occupation was ended and the region...
