Café De Gekroonde Suikerbiet

Nieuwe Haven 141
4301 DL Schouwen-Duiveland

It's quite a mouthful, but the Zierikzeese Cafe de Crowned Sugar Beet is also popularly known as the Beet. It owes this special name to the beet transports that have taken place from Schouwen-Duiveland since the end of the nineteenth century. Since 1873 there has been an inn with pub on this site. A bustling hotspot on the harbor of Zierikzee where there is always something to experience. A timeless brown cafe, living room pub, (beer) tasting, party tent, lunch spot and restaurant along the quay of Zierikzee. De Biet is the anchor of the city. Feel welcome.


Uitkijktoren de Plompetoren

4328NR Schouwen-Duiveland

This watchtower is located in the forestry of Burgh-Haamstede, on the highest dune top in this area. It is probably the highest point in all of Schouwen-Duiveland.

Museumhaven Zeeland

Grand café de Werf
4301NB Schouwen-Duiveland

This museum consists of an outdoor location with a collection of historic ships in the Oude Haven of Zierikzee and an indoor location with ship engines and other items related to shipping.

Slot Haamstede

4328AH Schouwen-Duiveland

Opposite the church, in the middle of the village of Haamstede, is Slot Haamstede. The oldest part of the current castle dates from the 13th century. The other parts were added in the following centuries. Traces of the Romans and Normans have even been found on the castle island! Now the castle and the accompanying estate are owned by Natuurmonumenten. The lock is normally closed to visitors. You can view it during Heritage Days. You can also take a guided walk around the estate.
