    The Fish Market

    by pieter_jan_v Updated Jan 5, 2014
    Oude Vismarkt - Goes

    There is not much left of the fish market; just East of the big market square.

    The word VIS (fish) on one of the walls of an adjacent building are is a recent pointer to the former fish market. When I walked by a small girl said: "That's not a fish! It's a mermaid's tail".

    The Grote- or Maria Magdalenakerk church is the dominant building in the heart of Goes.

    The history of this building goes back to the 12th century when a first small Catholic church room was build at this location. This room was expanded to the East several times, until in In 1455 a major reconstruction and extensions started that were finalised in 1520.
    In 1578 the building was taken over by Reformed church.
    In 1618 a fire damaged wooden parts of the construction that mostly were replaced by stones ones thereafter.
    The last restauration happened from 1998 to 2000.

    In the Summer the church is open to visitors on Tuesdays and Saturdays 1PM - 4PM.

    Stadshaven - Goes
    2 more images

    Goes still has a city harbour, but it's only used by some smaller recreational boats, because the place is at a dead end of a canal to the Oosterschelde.
    Around the small stadshaven you find some of the Goed grandeur from ages ago.

    ZEELAND MARITIEM :

    Rental Yacht

    People will always be attracted by water. Especially in Zeeland, located in the southwest of The Netherlands. The battle against water has appealed to mankind for generations. People have also used the water to come from all over the world. Many of us still have a dream to sail around the world. However, only very few of us make this dream come true....

    Nearer home you will find in the Deltawaters of Zeeland a watersports eldorado. Zeeland has as many moorings for yachts as Friesland and the IJsselmeer area put together! Yacht Charter only takes place on a very limited scale, which means a peaceful atmosphere in the harbours.

    ZEELAND MARITIEM is based in Goes, in the very heart of Zeeland.

    We, ZEELAND MARITIEM, offer you a wide range of services, learning how to sail or perhaps sail with us in our traditional boat in the waters of Zeeland.

    The sailing areas lie between Rotterdam and Antwerp.

    These areas offer many harbours, located both on tidal and non tidal waters. Antwerp is the well known port and historic city on the Westerschelde in Belgium. It is possible to moor in one of the historic innerharbours, close to the historic city center.

    For bareboat charter, you will need to have a knowledge of the rules and have practical experience. However, we can teach you both!

    We offer you experienced instructors who have a vast experience of sailing both the Deltawaters and the Northsea.

    Silver Goose" is an Albin Singolia, designed and built in Sweden. About 20 of these ships sail in Holland whilst its smaller sister,the Albin Vega, is better known, several hundreds of them sail in Holland.
    The yacht has a spacious accommodation, 6 berths together with a berth for the skipper. During daytrips we can take a maximum of 8 people.(see picture)
