Editor's pick

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). Zierikzee is also an excellent place to enjoy Zeeland's delicious Oosterschelde lobster. We recommend Brasserie Maritime.
