Top 10 best activities
It is a popular holiday destination, but what is there to do in Zeeland? Read 10 tips to do, the best restaurants and best activities. From sushi to mussels, from boulevard to wellness. Welcome to Zeeland!
Day in Domburg
Discover Domburg, one of the most beautiful coastal towns in all of the Netherlands. The climate is good for body and mind. According to research, the salty seawater even has a healing effect here, which is why Domburg can officially be called a ‘seaside resort’. Besides Domburg, only Cadzand is allowed to carry this designation in the Netherlands! Take a dip – if you dare – and take a lovely walk on the beach with beautiful views of the area. Also, stroll past the statue of Dr. Mezger, the founder of physiotherapy that made Domburg popular among the European nobility around 1900.
After such a strenuous day, enjoy delicious dishes at Grand Café Domburg. They have everything your heart (and stomach) desires here! Warm soups, grilled steak, gently cooked veal or freshly prepared sushi. Not to mention the desserts…
Built at the end of the thirteenth century as a lookout for Vlissingen, now a popular holiday area: Dishoek. Visit the bunker complex in the dunes or walk along the wonderfully quiet beach to the boulevard in Vlissingen.
For a break you can go to Grand Café Blur in Dishoek. Enjoy chicken dishes, excellent fish & chips or traditional mussels here. More charmed by Italian cuisine? Pizzas are also on the menu. For lunch there are luxurious sandwiches to choose from, and breakfast is also possible here. Prefer to get started yourself? Then follow a cooking workshop with friends or family.
Wellness in Zeeland
Do you work full time or study hard? Take your own moment and forget everything for a while. Enjoy wonderful saunas and the most luxurious treatments in the wellness & beauty center A-thermen. Have breakfast first at Hotel Restaurant De Kamperduinen or at the beach pavilion De Banjaard and then indulge in a day of relaxation. A-thermen has an infrared sauna, panorama sauna, Finnish sauna, infusion sauna, silence sauna, a wonderful steam cabin and salt crystal cabin. For dinner you can also go to De Kamperduinen. From delicious soups to steaks and then finish with a great dessert. What does a man want more?
Coffee in Vlissingen
Experience the port city of Vlissingen in all its glory with a personal city guide or go on a discovery tour of interesting places yourself. Such as the Sint Jacobskerk, Fort Rammekens or the arcade hall with all kinds of fun games. Got an appetite? Settle down at one of the hippest tents on the boulevard for a cup of coffee, a delicious lunch or a tasty dinner. At Arion, choose from the best cappuccinos or have a traditional Italian coffee with amaretto. Or a caffè con panna with whipped cream…? Enjoy a delicious sandwich after or during this cup of coffee.
Shopping in Goes
The city of Goes has a wonderful mix of shops in historic buildings, from independent entrepreneurs with high-end fashion brands to well-known chains such as H&M, Omoda and Vero Moda. Goes is also known as the fashion city of Zeeland. Everything is within walking distance of each other, so tired legs are hard to find.
If you want to take a break, come and sit on the terrace at Het Postkantoor, with a view of the market or more privately on the back terrace. Here you can enjoy Italian salads, pastas and pizzas. Do you prefer a burger? Also on the menu, just like chicken, steak or veal. Take a delicious beer from the special beer list with a choice of different types such as lager, triple, blond or trappist. Roll from the terrace to your car: there are several parking spaces on the edge of the center, including two parking garages. Will you be home or at your holiday address in no time!
Middelburg owes its name to the fact that it was the middle castle of Walcheren. Today there are still more than 1,100 national monuments in the city center – it is not for nothing that it is the monumental capital. Discovering the history of this city is therefore fun to do in Zeeland, from the well-known city hall to the Zeeuws Museum. Or grab Charlie’s Chocolate Museum! Want to relax after all that information? Come and have a bite to eat at the always pleasant Marktcafé. From bitterballen, sandwiches and wraps to a tasty pastry.
Sushi in Zeeland
Make all your friends jealous with NEXT’s heavenly noodles, salmon rolls, tempura dishes and Insta-worthy sushi! The stylish café NEXT is located on the boulevard in Vlissingen, with the best view in Zeeland. They serve the freshest, tasty and photogenic dishes here. The menu is based on tasty Asian cuisine, with the greatest emphasis on sushi. Take a seat on the terrace outside or inside by the fireplace. Enjoy your meal!
Cycling in Zeeland
Get on your bike and explore Walcheren! At Hotel Restaurant De Kamperduinen you can rent a bicycle cheaply for a day. Electric bicycles can also be rented here. Where are we going: picturesque Veere with a view over the Veerse Meer, towards Neeltje Jans – one of the modern seven wonders of the world – or through the Walcheren dune area towards Domburg? Don’t forget to eat well before the bike ride starts. In De Kamperduinen you can enjoy delicious sandwiches, pancakes, bouncers and more.
Boulevard in Vlissingen
The best view of the province can be found on the boulevard of Vlissingen, on the North Sea. The ships sail very close to the coast. Strolling along the boulevard is therefore an indispensable thing to do in Zeeland. Let yourself be pampered with a delicious breakfast in the luxurious four-star hotel Arion. Then enjoy everything that Vlissingen has to offer. Also view the water tower and the beautiful mill on the dike.
When everyone has blown away, enjoy a delicious three-course dinner in the luxurious restaurant Arion. Choose from everything from gently cooked beef stew or guinea fowl to sole or cod fillet. Do you want a nice steak? Arion serves tournedos, ribeye, sirloin steak and venison steak. Or have something special with lobster! Finish with a wonderful steam session in the sauna and then come and have a drink in the lounge. Or grab a divine dessert: brownie, crème brulee, dame blanche or something fruity like baked pear or a raspberry tart.
Going out in Goes
Going out in Goes is always a success. From the party club El Toro to the more peasant cafes like National, you have everything here. Even the rockers have a place in Goes at De Pompe. Do you really want to have a party, not walk straight home? Then come to the 25+ evening in Jersey now. On a normal evening, Jersey is the ideal place to sit on the terrace.
