    A view from the resto

    Favorite thing: A nice romantic location, not that far from Middelburg, a place in Sealand

    Fondest memory: The environment, the coast, the many typical shops and monuments.
    Just strolling around on a lazy sunday afternoon, before the touristic peak season

    Bring some money

    by OlafS Written Apr 1, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: In today's modern society you'd expect to be able to get money "from the wall" everywhere. So did I. But no matter how much I searched for a money dispenser (I forgot the English name for those), I couldn't find one. That left me with not enough money to visit the big church.

    Middelburg, capitol of Zeeland

    by Pavlik_NL Updated Mar 22, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Middelburg townhall

    Favorite thing: The capitol of Zeeland is Middelburg. This historical town has kept it's charme and the highlight of that is surely the cityhall on the central Marketsquare. The Gothic building holds many little details and is truely a work of architectural beauty. The town has a very cosy area in the centre, where colourful canalhouses reflect in the water of the canals. On various lokations sailingships have anchored to stay a while in Middelburg. In the town is also Miniature-park, an intresting scale-model of the surrounding region 'Walcheren'. Direct south of the capitol is the main harbour of Zeeland 'Vlissingen' (in English Flushing). From here you can take the foot/bicycle-ferry to "Zeeuws Vlaanderen" (Zeeland's Flandres), a Dutch enclave in Belgium where the harbourterrains of Terneuzen are.

    Windmill

    VEERE WINDMILL

    Favorite thing: On a clear day it's the combination of green grass, blue sky and the white of clouds or in this case a windmill that makes a truly Dutch landscape.

    I got on my knees to catch all of those colours in this picture.

    Campveerse toren

    VEERE CAMPVEERSE TOWER

    Favorite thing: This is now a restaurant but was also a tavern in the 16th century when William of Orange brought his bride, the French Charlotte de Bourbon here for the wedding feast.
    When our guide told us that 2 years ago I was a little suprised.
    William of Orange married Charlotte de Bourbon in Brielle (my hometown). Brielle was then just a little larger and powerful than Veere with 5000 inhabitants within its city walls.
    To get to Veere from Brielle, one must travel 70 kilometres. I can hardly imagine that being done in one day then...so I must conclude the wedding went on for several days with A LOT of travelling.

    Town hall tower

    by ATLC Written Mar 21, 2003

    VEERE TOWN HALL

    Favorite thing: The elegantly slim tower was added to the town hall (here seen from the back) between 1594-95. It adds immensely to the picturesque image of the building and as I mention in Off the Beaten path tips: the carillon (belfry) sounds amazingly clear and light. Very very lovely.

    Little street

    by ATLC Written Mar 21, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    VEERE

    Favorite thing: Beside the town hall is a little street with just a very few houses and big walled gardens.
    Friends live in this street but as they weren't home I bought a slade and old fashionedly scribbled a message, had it wrapped and dropped it in their mailbox.
    I'm waiting for their phonecall!

    Lovely Veere

    by Monique_T Written Feb 25, 2003

    Favorite thing: We had never been to Veere before but we had heard it is a lovely place. And it sure is. It is not very big, you can't spend two days there (well, ofcourse you can but won't see anything new then). It is a lovely village with old buildings, nice streets, nice harbour, relax in one of the pubs and have a drink there, or just have a look around in all the shops.

    The Quai (Kaai

    VEERE QUAI

    Favorite thing: In summer the harbour is awash with sailing yachts.
    In fact, most people that visit Veere do so by boat. The town itself is reachable from Middelburg and via a narrow dyke road from Vrouwenpolder.

    VEERE SCULPTURE

    Favorite thing: I don't know what this sculpture is here for. It shows a little boy and girl playing ball.
    It's in the middle of the "Markt" (market). Two narrow one way roads with a park in the middle.

    VEERE TOWN HALL

    Favorite thing: This was built probably between 1474 and 1517 under Master Evert Spoorwater. The gablefront is almost all intact. The front is very rich in late gothic style.
