    Gevangentoren

    Halfway Boulevard De Ruyter you will find the "Gevangentoren", also called "Bomvrije". It is a remainder of a city gate of the 15th century.
    The top of the tower has been restored to its original form in 1960.
    Nowadays you will find a restaurant in the Gevangentoren.

    muZEEum

    by Imaniac Written Jan 1, 2004

    The muZEEum is a museum for the naval history of the province of Zeeland. It specialises on the 16th and 17th century with Michiel de Ruyter. It is a very well organised museum and also fun for kids. Besides the many displays on 4 levels, you can also play games or have a great view from the look out tower. Entrance is 6 Euro for adults.

    WALK, WALK, WALK.......

    STONE TABLET IN VLISSINGEN HOLLAND....

    COMFORTABLE FOOTWEAR is paramount.

    Exploring e.g. VLISSINGEN is great and best to do it on foot: feel the cobble stoned streets and alleys.....

    Visit the VVV (Tourist Information Office) and they will show you all there is in VLISSINGEN that is worthwhile visiting.....

    And I, who have spent hundreds if not thousands of hours on THE BOULEVARD, savouring sweet ICE-CREAMS or walking with the wind in my teeth, basking in the sun on the sandy beach, listening to the sounds of the waves or showing MY VT GUESTS around there, I know that if you visited the BOULEVARD only, you would have a perfect day.

    Never forget that the SEAWAY is so near to the shoreline that you can see and hear the people on every ship that passes by, you can read their nams, try to identify their flags.......you won't feel bored for one moment.

    During the nights I can hear the FOG HORN and will know that it is AUTUMN again and see the faint flashes of the LIGHTHOUSE light in my bedroom and will know that all ships are safe and can hear the ships' heavy MACHINES working and will know that the wind is a WESTERLY one.......and that there will always be a DYKE WATCH then who patrol the dykes, dunes and dams and will know I am SAFE...

    But in town you can also sea how old this town is......and how snug and cosy, with lots of surprises for young and old.......

  • The Boulevard, Vlissingen

    The Boulevard, Vlissingen
    It's always busy and so alive. You can just relax somewhere and have a drink or just wander over the boulevard. What makes it so different from all other boulevards???? The atmosphere, the view over the ocean, watching ships sail by. That's what's different and it's clean.

    Enjoy the lovely beach

    Beach Vlissingen

    That's what I mostly do when I'm in Vlissingen: enjoy the lovely beach. ;)
    The sand is fine, soft and whitish and there's always a little breeze. OK, the Northsea water is cold but who cares?!

    The North Sea/wall

    Wind storm!

    On a fair day you can see Belgium from here. It is amazing how much the wall protects the town from the weather! This was not a fair day.

    Too much coffeeshop?

    I don't know who designed these but they were different. This was the only section like this in an otherwise traditional dutch town.
