Middelburg is the historical town of Zeeland. Situated on the island of Walcheren, it has more than 1,200 buildings of historical interest, including the old town hall, the ‘Lange Jan’ or Long John Tower, the domed Koepelkerk church and the abbey, which is home to the museum. These are all surrounded by streets lined with large distinctive houses. Most of the town´s listed buildings date back to the 17th century, the prosperous period in Dutch history known as the Golden Age. The harbours, also dating from this period, have largely been preserved. Why not moor your yacht at the heart of this atmospheric town or take a boat trip along the canals?
