Favorite thing: You see this a lot in The Netherlands. Big houses that are very wide but not deep. Probably to make an impression on people.
Favorite thing: Entering through the gate into the abbey (under the coat of arms) you'll find this little nest. The bird didn't blink when I first used my camera flash and posed for this better picture :-)
Favorite thing: As said elsewhere on this page, the abbey was closed for tourists until April 1st and all we got to see was part of an inner courtyard and this beautiful old roof.
Favorite thing: Part of the abbey, used as municipal building. If you see a wrought iron gate and it is open, saunter in and take a look!
Favorite thing: The most beautiful houses can be found in quiet streets bordering the bustling inner center. I liked the street lighting.
Favorite thing: You can find many nice old houses in Middelburg. It is great to see what they look like, wouldn't it be great to have one like that yourself?
