VLISSINGEN

 

 

 

 

This music-band was playing at the second of the twice yearly art-market in the covered city-centre of Vlissingen.

 

Especially the harbour of Vlissingen is very surprising. Coming via Koudekerke, just arriving in Vlissingen, take the road to the Boulevard. This Boulevard is terrific, plenty of space to park, benches to have a look at the sea-traffic that heads to the North Sea, and at the end an imposing statue of Admiral Michiel de Ruyter (1607-1676).

 

The whole of the Boulevard is one-way traffic and the statue is situated on a roundabout. At this point, at the other side of the harbour, you can see Het Arsenaal, ideal for a family outing. It has a pirate-park and a sea-aquarium. To park, you will have to make a detour and from the parking it takes some walking – take a wheelchair!

 

 

From the statue of Michiel de Ruyter you are directed down into the old and very attractive part of Vlissingen.

At the waterfront the museum Zeeuws Maritiem muZEEum is located, part of the façade is very modern. The museum is equipped for the not so mobile, except for the attic-part and the watchtower.

 

Unfortunately the Reptile-zoo is not for the less mobile; a narrow entrance and steps.

 

Vlissingen is worth a visit!
