Zeeuws-Vlaanderen stands for friendliness and Burgundy cosiness. In that respect we are similar on our southern neighbors, the Belgians. You can enjoy the many fine restaurants in our region. A real crowd puller is the historic town Sluis. Here the shops, restaurants and cafés are open seven days a week.

Culture

There is no shortage of cultural heritage in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. Widely known is Aardenburg. This oldest city of Zeeland was once an important Roman fortress. The town with its Archaeological Museum and 1000 years old St. Baafs Church is worth a visit. Groede is a little picturesque town where Het Vlaemsch Erfgoed (Flemish Heritage) has turned a picturesque street, Slijkstraat street, into a quaint array of museum shops and historical workshops. IJzendijke has a beautiful old market which in the 17th century under Prince Maurice served as a military training area. In the museum you can find several exhibitions related to the region. In Oostburg, you will find the Ledeltheater with a rich program of film, theatre and music.

Belgium

Brugge Brugge

Just across the border you will find the famous Belgian cities of Bruges and Ghent. By car from Breskens can get there in about 45 minutes. Even closer is the fashionable resort of Knokke. With its boulevard and over a thousand exclusive boutiques you imagine yourself on the French Riviera. We recommend the coastal tram which runs for 67km along the Belgian coast from Knokke to De Panne. The fare to ride on the tram is friendly. On the way you can get off and on whenever you want so you can get acquainted with the various Belgian coastal towns including Blankenberge and Ostend. The historic city of Bruges attracts tourists from around the world. Let yourself be guided in an old-fashioned horse-drawn carriage or take a canal boat. You will be amazed by the beauty of the city.
