The city Middelburg is the attractive capital of Zeeland. Middelburg used to be one of the trading cities of the VOC (Dutch East India Company). You can still sense its wealthy past as you walk through the old city center.
Highlights of Middelburg
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. With one of the canal tours, you can explore the city of Middelburg and its glorious past from a different perspective.
You can easily spend a day wandering through the back alleys and along the canals of the old inner city of Middelburg. Besides historical structures, you can also enjoy the shopping scene and one of the restaurants and cafes with outdoor areas.
