Terneuzen Things to Do

  • Visit Hulst.

    This small town advertises itself as 'the most Flemmish town in The Netherlands'. This is certainly partly true due to the language spoken in this town, which is almost the same as on the Belgian side of the border, and due to the architecture of the old buildings. Mostly this is probably true due to the masses of Belgian tourists who visit this...

  • Go and see the North-Sea.

    The coast of The Netherlands has great sand-beaches. In the picture you see a sunset behind a container-ship. The black lines in the front are two rows of wooden wave-breakers. In wintertime there can be quite severe storms, which are the origin of hugh waves who dammege the dunes and take sand of the beaches. The wave-breakers are one of the means...

    After the Shantyfestival the organisation had assigned us to this restaurant where we were very warmly welcomed and well seated... al 25 of us (give or take). Since we were in the mood, soon the accordeon came out and the whole restaurant was singing sea shanties loudly. The owner and waitress reacted very well to the flood of guests, complicated...

    The only fast way to get to Terneuzen is by car. From the south go to the Belgian town Gent, and from there follow the canal straight to the north (30 kilometers from Gent). From the east first fo to Antwerp and take the road to the Belgian coast (in the direction Oostende, Knokke) to the small town of Zelzate on the Dutch-Belgian border. From there go straight to the north (allong the canal)(50 kilometers from Antwerp).
    The most touristic (scenic) route is comming from the north. You will have to use a ferry to get accross the Westerschelde. There is a ferry from Kruiningen to Perkpolder east of Terneuzen, the second one is from Flushing (Vlissingen) to Breskens.
    These ferries are quite big! More then 200 cars can find a place on them. In the daytime there is a departure every half hour, in the evening every hour. Sailing time is about 20 minutes. If you want to use one of these ferries in the high-season (summer), be prepared for a waiting time of over an hour! Comming from these ferries either side just follow the signs to Terneuzen.
    There is no railway station in Terneuzen.
    There is very little public transportation in Terneuzen. Either you use your car, or rent a bicycle (or walk since the town is not that big).

    Don't take a swim in the Westerschelde! This sea-arm gets it's water from the river Schelde that flows in Belgium along various industrial areas, the last beeing the nuclear plant just north of Antwerp. It's one of the most poluted water-ways in Europe.

    Beeing a port Terneuzen is one of the Dutch towns which are known for the drugtrafficing. In the daytime and in crowded places you will probably notice nothing of this. Visiting the small red-light district at night is maybe not such a good idea (unless you are a sailor who has been on a ship for 3 months!). Remember that the use and ownership of...

    If you are very interrested in the petro-chemical industrie you might consider a guided tour on the grounds of the DOW-factory, the largest from this compagnie outside the USA.
