Description

The old fortified town of Hellevoetsluis is wonderful to discover on foot. In the museum harbor you get a good idea of the activity of the past.

Windmill Sea View
After an overnight stay in the atmospheric Resort Poort van Zeeland, you will set off. Just above Hellevoetsluis you pass Molen Zeezicht. This flour mill was built in 1717 as a replacement for a blown down post mill. The name suggests that you can see the sea from the mill, but nothing could be further from the truth. The story goes that the name once appeared under the layers of paint of a fence. A fence that would come from a house in Scheveningen...

Lighthouse Hellevoetsluis
Hellevoetsluis used to be a prosperous town thanks to the port, until a canal was built to open up the port of Rotterdam. During the Second World War, the town received another heavy blow: the Germans demolished a large part of Hellevoetsluis to improve their field of fire. There is much to see in the harbor: you will find a lighthouse from 1822, a flour mill from 1801 and Droogdok Jan Blanken that was built between 1798 and 1822.
