    Historical markers

    by Bonobo2005 Updated Jul 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Marker former townhall

    Favorite thing: Many of Serooskerke's historical buildings are gone, but some still exist.

    Visitors might not notice these at first glance, but ancient markers help to remind you of Serooskerke's rich history.

    This one showed on the picture tells us that the building was converted to townhall in 1905.

    ***see the travelogue(s) for the AMAZING Historical Heart of Serooskerke Tour - a walk around the legendary historical markers in Serooskerke - ***

    note July 2005: the particular tour does not exist yet and is due to be included in the walking tour described in the "Things to do"- section. Please be patient.

    Performances brassband EMM

    by Bonobo2005 Updated Jul 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Easter performance EMM

    Favorite thing: A visit to a performance of the local brass band EMM (Eendracht Maakt Macht) easliy could be the highlight of your day.

    What you at least find here is a big deal of enthousiasm from local musicians who are very well trained. The standard of their performance is really high.
    Their repertoire includes popular, folk & classical;

    Unfortunately EMM doesn't perform very often for audience, but check it out if you're around...!

    EMM's home is the building behind the "Jeugdhonk", Oostkapelseweg.

    Fondest memory: The fantastic Hungarian compositions performed by EMM!

    In recent years EMM has become more varied and experimental with the addition of a percussionist and the use of unconventional instruments.

    Note July 2005: EMM performs their best productions annualy on 2nd Easter Day, kicking off around 9.30AM. Definately a must if you're around!

    Open Garden Mr. A. Francke (2)

    by Bonobo2005 Updated Jul 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Market day in Zeeland

    Favorite thing: Mr. Francke himself is one of the most respectable artists of Serooskerke, and he displays his work during the open day.

    It should not be missed, since this is one of the rare occasions you can admire it!

    Pieces of his collection, some of it made by collegue artists, can be seen in the garden, interacting brilliantly with the natural environment!

    Open Garden Mr. A. Francke

    by Bonobo2005 Updated Jul 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Swamp area in Mr. Francke's Garden

    Favorite thing: Another garden that shouldn't be missed on Open Garden Day, is the private garden of Mr. A. Francke.

    This incredible garden, that delicately mixes natural (wild) areas with fine design, attracts huge numbers of birds and butterflies.

    You can also find some idyllic hide-outs, in addition to fantastic views over the countrside.

    The garden is located on the Oostkapelseweg, Serooskerke. Admission is free.

    Update July 2005: this year Mr. Francke did not participate in the Open Garden Day. It is highly unsure if he ever will reopen his garden in future...By all means thank you very much Mr. Francke for all those wonderful years that we could visit your private garden, which remained one of the most interesting I ever saw!

    Brouwers (or: Brouwerij?) Sprinke

    by Bonobo2005 Updated Jul 3, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    wowwwwwwwww......so beautiful!

    Fondest memory: The Brouwers Sprinke is a stunning little canal, one of the most scenic of Serooskerke, that starts near The Sandpit,

    The canal was known already about 1000 years ago. There used to be a little path along the canal that connected Serooskerke with the Estate of Leeuwendamme!

    These days you can still follow the canal to the present day farm annex mini camping Leeuwendamme. But you have to cross private property and I can imagine that farmers don't like a busloads full of Japanese and German tourists wandering on their lands...

    If you really want to explore the Brouwers Sprinke, you can ask permission at Leeuwendamme!

    Update July 2005: I just went to visit the Sprinke and noticed huge pollution near the sandpit. Also, it is likely that part of this historical stream will be sacrificed to construction of new houses. I will keep you up to date....

    Open Mill Day

    by Bonobo2005 Written Feb 29, 2004
    Brilliant views on the breathtaking  Mill De Hoop

    Favorite thing: Mill Day is celebrated once a year in The Netherlands, and usually coincides with "Bicycle Day".

    It goes without saying that Serooskerke, with its important mill, is one of the favourite locations for so called mill freaks.

    At this day Mill The Hoop will be open for visitors, and the miller explains everything you want to know about his work and the history.

    You can pause here, have a drink and admire the area from the terrace of the resturant.

    Open Air Service Calvinist Church

    by Bonobo2005 Updated Feb 29, 2004
    EMM in the Churchyard

    Favorite thing: If you are really lucky you may be able to attend an open air service in the yard of the Calvinist Church!

    Lucky, because it happens maybe just once or twice a year, and of course only when the weather is reasonably nice.

    I was that lucky. It's fenomenal to hear EMM performing in front of the chuch. It reminds me of the twenties, when EMM even had its own very covered stage in the yard.

    check out the announcements

    Endless views over the plains and farmlands

    by Bonobo2005 Updated Feb 28, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not too bad view from sleeping room

    Fondest memory: The view from my window can sometimes be describes as simply awesome!

    Around Serooskerke there are many spots where you can enjoy great endless views.

    Though I love mountain scenery, the flatness of Zeeland can be an attraction as well!

    Stunning views from the tower

    by Bonobo2005 Updated Jul 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Splendid view over hazy Serooskerke

    Fondest memory: I was lucky enough to have an opportunity to climb the tower of Serooskerke.

    It's not very tall, only about 28 meter.
    93 stone steps wind up to the top floor.

    From there you can overlook most of Serooskerke. On the picture are clearly visible the swimming pool "Goudvijver" and behind that Park Welgelegen.

    Unfortunately the tower is not open for tourism -but you might have a little change if you visit the church on a sundays, on Queens Day at 8AM or on the annual "Day of Serooskerke" and ask politely.

    ***for more about this BIG adventure inside the tower -please visit the travelogue***

    Billiards club SVB

    by Bonobo2005 Updated Jul 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mr. R. Allaart concentrates...

    Fondest memory: "Stroskerkse Biljart Vereninging" is one of the more vibrant clubs in Serooskerke.

    It has 20 members (which is the limit) who play a Libre competition from september until april every year.

    Libre is the game with 3 balls and no holes in the table. With the white ball you have to touch the 2 others, not necessarily over the cushions.
    The best SVB-clubplayer averages about 5 caramboles in a row, which is pretty good. I play only 0,6 myself ;-(

    SVB evenings are on mondays at the bar of Camping Olmeveld. It's not a restricted area so if you're around you're welcome to watch and have a drink. The game is the reason to come together, but socializing is at least as important.

    Front garden Mr. & Mrs. Louws

    Favorite thing: Once a year - usually on a mid June Saturday -Mr. and Mrs. Louws opens their garden for public.

    While you will be warmly welcomed by Mrs. Louws, Mr. Louws will be happy to tell all about his considerations and explain the garden details.

    Situated on the Oostkapelseweg in Serooskerke.

    Detail of the Garden

    Favorite thing: This beautiful garden is a masterpiece of colours, hidden corners and exciting combinations, that takes you by surprise all the time

    During the open day you have a chance to admire a wide variety of flowers, trees, bush and the like, all set in what must be one of the most creative garden designs in Serooskerke !
