During this bike tour you will pass various seaside resorts, such as Oostkapelle, Westkapelle and Zoutelande. Westhove Castle is located in Oostkapelle. It used to serve as a country house for distinguished Zeeland families and from the thirteenth to the sixteenth century it was owned by the Middelburg abbey. During the Eighty Years' War it fell into the hands of the Watergeuzen. Unfortunately, a large part of the lock was lost by fire. What you can still see there are the buildings of the actual outer bailey. However, it remains a beautiful and romantic image of a medieval castle. In Westkapelle, take a look at the Polderhuis Westkapelle Dyke and War Museum. Near the beautiful old Veere you can get off at Theetuin and Boerderijcamping Plantlust for a piece of apple pie!

Sights

Kasteel Westhove

4356ND Veere

Westhove Castle was once a mighty castle. The castle was already mentioned in a charter from 1277. It belonged to the abbey in Middelburg. It is not clear how old the castle was then. And by whom it was built. Not much remains of the medieval castle. But enough to still capture the imagination! You can still see the lower parts of some towers and some parts of wall work. The castle is largely freely accessible. In the former orangery you will find the Terra Maris museum. Furthermore, a replica of a medieval moth castle has been placed in the garden of the castle. There is a hostel in the castle and the coach houses. You can guess. This is a top destination for children.
