Since the early Middle Ages, Zierikzee was a rich trading city. Its wealth led to the construction of a beautiful port, city hall, mills, church and city walls and gates. Nowadays, Zierikzee attracts many day visitors who are interested in the glorious past and its well over 500 historical monuments.
Highlights of Zierikzee
If you visit Zierikzee, you should go and see the tower Sint-Lievensmonstertoren. Feel free to climb the so-called “fat tower of Zierikzee” and enjoy the view. Other highlights are the Maritime Museum, the 16th century city hall and the Nobel gate. Relax with a drink, while overlooking the old harbor with its historical ships.
This small municipality is beautiful any time of the year. Your day out in Zierikzee isn’t complete if you haven’t tried a specialty from Zeeland, such as a Zeeuwse bolus (sweet pastry) or Schouws palingbroodje (eel roll).
