Right in the heart of the city lies a former abbey complex. You can see the abbey tower, Lange Jan (Long John), from far away and on a sunny day the climb is really worth the effort. The abbey also houses the Zeeuws Museum, which features all aspects of the history of Zeeland. Stroll along the 15th century gothic city hall and market square.
