Shift down
Veere is one of the most picturesque fortified towns in the Netherlands, but the surrounding area is also well worth a visit. Here you walk through the quiet polders of the Walcheren Canal to the Veerse Kreek and the Vest van Veere. The creek with its many foothills was created at the end of the Second World War during the inundation of Walcheren. Today it is a quiet and beautiful nature reserve where it is wonderful to walk.

The Four Scissors
In Veere, drop by the town hall with its beautiful facade from the fifteenth century: it houses the Town Hall Museum De Vierspoel. The carillon in the tower has been voted one of the most beautiful in the Netherlands. All those historic buildings soon tempt you to slow down.

Vestingstad Veere

Stadhuisstraat 2
4351 AJ 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.
