The centre of Middelburg seems to be one big open-air museum. Stroll through the idyllic streets and squares of the capital of Zeeland. Although a large part of Middelburg was destroyed during a bombardment in 1940, many historical buildings have been restored to their former glory.
Step back in time. For example, around the old marina. On the quay, near the former VOC warehouses, the ships are simply moored in the middle of the historic centre. Or stroll along the old Vismarkt, which is paved with cobblestones and surrounded by large chestnut trees. One of Middelburg's best-known attractions is the 90-metre-high abbey tower 'De Lange Jan', which you can climb. Also great fun for children, by the way! If you book a city walk at De Drukkerij bookshop, you will learn all about the history of Middelburg. Also worth a visit are the Town Hall, the Vleeshal and the Zeeuws Museum.
There is also plenty for children to do in Middelburg. How about Mini Mundi, an amusement park with an indoor and outdoor play area, or a boat trip through the town's canals? Park Toorenvliedt is ideal for a picnic on a hot summer's day. There is a playground in the park and especially for children, a treasure hunt has been set out in the bunkers dating from the Second World War. There is no need to be bored here!
