Fortified city

Vestingstad Veere

Veere is beautifully situated on the Veerse lake. When this lake was not yet closed from the sea by the Veerse Gatdam, there was a lot of trade here with foreign ships. For example, richly laden ships from Scotland once lay here. Nowadays you will mainly find pleasure boats in the ports at this lake. Veere flourished in the 16th century when the town served as a trading point for Scottish wool. At that time a Scottish colony also settled in Veere. Later Veere lost her exclusive right in the Netherlands to trade wool and as a result the trade decreased. Today Veere is a tourist town.
