This route may be too long with small children, but definitely recommended with older children! The route leads you around Vlissingen with no less than 7 kilometers along the beautiful coastline of this Zeeland town. Vlissingen is one of the seventeen protected town and village views in Zeeland. In the summer months, the Boulevards, Nollestrand and Badstrand attract many tourists and residents of Vlissingen. On the southern pier is a wind chime, which consists of bamboo pipes (with various holes). In strong winds, this almost sounds like a chorus. You will also find the statue of Michiel de Ruyter here. Michiel de Ruyter is one of the most famous naval heroes in Dutch history. He played an important role in the first three Anglo-Dutch Wars. In addition, he took part in various wars in the Baltic Sea and against piracy in the Mediterranean. De Ruyter was alternately employed by the state and shipowners, and was even active in the whaling industry as an independent entrepreneur for a while. The old center has about 300 monuments, making the city the 30th monument city in the Netherlands. For example, we find the Oranjemolen in the city. The mill is capable of grinding and is still used to grind grain on a voluntary basis. Of the 23 city mills in Vlissingen, the Oranjemolen is the only one left. It is the closest windmill in the Netherlands to the sea. The mill has suffered from the violence of war on several occasions. A bullet from the English fleet in 1809 is said to still be in the southwest side of the mill wall. Traces of the Second World War can also be found - the Allies landed near the mill in 1944. Partly due to these monuments, but also due to its location on the Western Scheldt, the robust and unpolished buildings in the Scheldt quarter and the busy shipping traffic in the roadstead, the city has a maritime character. The play of water and wind creates a different atmosphere in the city every day. The Western Scheldt has many shallow places, which means that most ships have a pilot on board. From the boulevards, the pilotage of the ships can be easily followed.
