‘Living in Middelburg makes me feel like I’m on a holiday every day.’

For years I lived in different big cities in Holland but I recently moved to the beautiful, historic city of Middelburg in Zeeland. It makes me feel like a tourist in my own country every day. I can find peace on the quiet, long beaches near Vlissingen and discover something new every time I explore the old inner city of Middelburg.

After work I go for a quick swim in the sea before enjoying some excellent Dutch fish while watching the sunset. It’s the perfect holiday experience to me, and I get to enjoy it on a regular working day! Of course I truly recommend this kind of wonderful summer night on the Vlissingen beach to any tourist. When combined with a stroll through the inner city of Middelburg, one of the seven most beautiful monumental cities in Holland, it makes for the perfect day in your trip to Holland.

My tip:

Have a drink at one of the many terraces on Markt square and enjoy the view of the fifteenth-century town hall. It’s beautiful!
