The town of Ter Nose, which grew into the current Terneuzen, was created around 1300. The history of the port is closely related to developments in the port area of Ghent, because this port sought a direct connection with areas further north. At first smaller, narrower waterways were built, but as cargo and other types of ships grew larger and sailing and steamships emerged, the navigation route was modified accordingly. The connection between Ghent and Terneuzen was deepened and widened and (more) modern locks were built to regulate traffic. The port of Terneuzen is also located in the third largest port area in the Netherlands. Less industrial than the port of Rotterdam, Terneuzen offers a perfect mix of dynamic economic activity and a smaller-scale area with its own personality. It is one of the youngest cities in the Netherlands and has developed in a special way from a small insignificant town to the third largest port area in the Netherlands, with a wide and deep canal that is not inferior to connections around Rotterdam and an attraction for large and small businesses. In addition, the windmill Windlust in Hoek is a nice attraction. The brick round tower mill was built in 1857 as a replacement for a standard mill. The usable parts of the old mill were reused in the new one. The mill underwent a few restorations, but after 2004 it did not run much anymore. When a new miller arrived in 2008, the mill started running more often again. If you want to view the inside of the mill, you can do this on Saturday.
