Visit Zeeland’s beautiful capital. Middelburg exudes a rich past with its many monuments, impressive squares, characteristic backstreets and merchant houses with beautiful facades. Middelburg actually boasts the most monuments per square meter in the whole of the Netherlands. Middelburg and Amsterdam together represented the very heart of the Netherlands during the sixteenth and seventeenth century. Many ships would set sail from the quays, in order to acquire riches and wealth in the Far East and South America. Middelburg’s rich history can still be experienced today during a walk through the town centre. Why not climb the 90 meter high Lange Jan, or enjoy a canal cruise and admire some of the historical treasures in the Zeeuws Museum.
