Vlissingen has it all: from kilometres of beach and the longest boulevard in the Netherlands to cosy terraces and shops. You will also find historic buildings such as the Keizersbolwerk and the remains of the old city wall. Picturesque Vlissingen is compact but there is plenty to see and do!
Stroll along the longest boulevard in the Netherlands where sea-going ships sail so close that you can almost touch them. Vlissingen is also the birthplace of mariner Michiel de Ruyter. His statue looks out over the water from the boulevard. On the boulevard, you will also find the Keizersbolwerk and the Gevangenentoren with a restaurant where you have a fantastic view of the water. Grab a terrace at the harbour or take a look at the Zeeuws Maritiem MusZEEeum. For children, Iguana Reptile Zoo is a must. Just like the Arsenal, where you can pet rays, take a look at a submarine and experience a pirate adventure.
Slightly to the south-west of Vlissingen is the Nollebos nature and recreation area, with numerous walking and cycling paths. And if you step on the Westerschelde Ferry (foot and cycle ferry), you can sail to Breskens and vice versa in no time.
