Zierikzee is best explored on foot. Put on your walking shoes and walk through beautiful old streets and along the Oude Haven.

Monument City
Zierikzee enjoys a protected cityscape for a reason. There are no fewer than 568 monuments, so take the time for this city walk to get a taste of the unique historical atmosphere. The city gained its wealth not only from fishing, but also from trade and industry. You will pass the Burgerweeshuis Zierikzee, a former orphanage, the oldest parts of which date from the fifteenth century.

Sint-Lievensmonstertoren
The most famous building in Zierikzee is the Sint-Lievensmonstertoren from 1506. The tower should have been the tallest in the country, but due to a lack of money, this was canceled. At the Oude Haven you pass the medieval Noord- and Zuidhavenpoort, two of the three remaining city gates of Zierikzee. Further on you will pass by Den Haas, a tower mill from 1727.

The most famous windmill type in the Netherlands. Windmills were not only used to produce flour from cereals, but also for draining polder areas. Natural energy. The most famous windmills can be found in Kinderdijk, which have truly been set up as a polder model. A must see!
