WELCOME TO THE JEWEL OF ZIERIKZEE
Sumptuous it is, Zierikzee on the Oosterschelde estuary, steeped in its captivating past and alive to today. Its wealth and stunning beauty are the rewards of centuries of trade, industry and fishing. And they’re sculpted in the shapely silhouettes of the town walls, gates, churches, towers and windmills. Where once the medieval portals stood guard, now they beckon you through to an intimately time-warping welcome of a wander. And a wonder.
Discover the (very) many listed buildings, the true jewels of Zierikzee. Follow the marked stones in the cobbled streets to the highlights. Might you get a fleeting dose of monument overload, stroll a while in the town’s green belt of the Slingerbos woods. And come back to dip into more of the town walks.
More food for the mind you’ll find in the museums nestling alongside the many shops – and do try some delicious Zeeland specialities in our homely restaurants and on the quayside terraces. Taste, smell and experience this Zensual jewel: it’s a joy to behold.
From the south-eastern P-Havenpoort, you’ll walk past the Noord- and Zuidhavenpoort, the awesomely medieval North and South city harbour gates and the Stads- en Commerciewerf, the working ship restoration wharf. Yes, this was used as a film set.
