Discover Middelburg: our tips!

Middelburg is the capital of Zeeland and a great city for both a weekend away and a (beach) holiday. Experience the rich past of Middelburg in the Zeeuws Museum or from the water and book a cruise. Climb the 207 steps of the Lange Jan abbey tower and have a beautiful view over Middelburg and Walcheren.

Got hungry? Dagcafé Sint Johnhas been serving the best toasted sandwiches and frozen yogurts in Middelburg for over 40 years. Enjoy a delicious fish dish at our neighbors at restaurant Basalt or choose a restaurant in the vicinity of Middelburg. We heartily recommend restaurant Hof aan Zee in Dishoek and Restaurant Mezger in Domburg.

From the center you are by car within 20 minutes and by bike in 30 minutes by the sea. Due to the central location of Middelburg, you can choose from the many Walcheren beaches, such as the beach of Zoutelande or Oostkapelle. Then don’t forget to stop by for a bottle of fresh wine at Winery Juste. This wine shop specializes in organic and bio-dynamic wines.

The Vismarkt in Middelburg

Every first Saturday of the month there is a flea market at our own Fish Market. Women from Arnemuiden used to sell fresh fish here. The fisherwoman came walking with two heavy baskets hanging from a yoke to Middelburg to sell their wares. When the tracks of the train and tram were in place, transportation became easier.
