Icon description route Description

A fascinating bicycle tour of several historic gems near Vlissingen and Middelburg. Your adventure begins near the striking Fort de Ruyter, a silent witness to the Dutch fighting spirit, once intended as an impregnable fortress. Imagine the stories the unfinished walls of this structure could tell. Continue your route and be greeted by "Michieltje," the statue of Michiel de Ruyter. This tribute to the legendary naval hero graces the boulevard of his hometown of Vlissingen and is a must-see for anyone who wants to experience the rich maritime history of the Netherlands.

Next, you cycle towards Middelburg, where the majestic windmill De Hoop, despite its stagnant present, still proudly graces the skyline as a monument of craftsmanship and tradition. The remainder of the bike tour leads you back to Vlissingen, ending with Fort Rammekens, the oldest sea fort in Western Europe. Get carried away by the historical layers of this imposing structure, from the time of the VOC to the defenses of World War II. This bicycle route offers a unique combination of culture, history and the unparalleled beauty of Zeeland!
