Reviewed By Aqualung A - Santa Maria, California

We went out for a drive looking for late tulips blooms and ended up in Zierikzee. After finding parking we walked by this old church. To a photo or two of it and walked into town for a meal. This church has unbelievable workmanship of it's age. If your into architecture this is a good place to see some.

Stadhuis Museum

Reviewed By Sjannie V - Eindhoven, The Netherlands

In a special building tells the story of Stadhuismuseum monument city Zierikzee and its surroundings. It does this by means of a fine collection. The museum will inform visitors, but also surprise. Culture lovers can indulge in the period rooms. For those interested in social and regional history, there is the large exhibition hall. Here are the highlights from the Town Hall Museum and the Maritime Museum reunited. Particularly the Greenland kayak, kayak oldest in the world. The room is like a great time capsule with the finest items from 1,000 years of history. Here are the three themes together: city, water and land.Highly Highly recommended

Museumhaven Zeeland

Reviewed By Veleiro - Dunkirk, France

The old harbour of Zierikzee reminded me immediately of Amsterdam but without the coffeeshops or the red light district. Really scenic is the collection of old boats of this open air museum. All ships have been restaured. Even on a dead sunday it's interesting as you can walk along the quays and read the information on a display with the history of each boat.

Zierikzee Stompe Toren

Reviewed By Paul v

OPEN UNTILL 28th of OCTOBER 2017 Nice overview from the rich history from Zierikzee and why this place was so important for the creation of the Netherlands and for the success of the ''golden century" The exhibition gives you a good overview even when it is small you walk in 30 minutes through this exhibition and if you want to make it complete you can for a small amount climb the stairs and go to the top of the tower to have a nice overview of the town, if you visit this town you should not miss it

The small town of Zierikzee offers a wide range of historic monuments.This late Medieval 14th-16th century gate (build 1400-1559) is situated at the entrance to the old harbour of Zierikzee.At the other side of the harbour the Zuidhavenpoort was build a century later around 1500;restored in 1774.I enjoyed both old historic city gates on my walk through lovely Zierikzee.Other monuments include the Gasthuiskerk and Beurs on the historic Havenplein and the 18th century mansions on Havenpark.

Gasthuis

Reviewed By bas k - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Dit 16de eeuwse Rijksmonument uit 1587-1613 is een bijzondere combinatie van een voormalige handelsbeurs onder de bogen op het Havenplein en een Nederlands Hervormde Kerk erachter.Ik vond het een bijzonder gebouw en net als de Nieuwe Kerk en de "Dikke Toren"-Lievenmonstertoren van Zierikzee een bezoek waard.
Vlakbij is het Havenpark met fraaie 18de eeuwse woningen met detail in de Rococo Stijl.
Het witte interieur van de kerk is fraai maar lijkt op veel andere protestanse kerken in Zeeland.

Frisia Rondvaarten

Reviewed By idegenvezetoe - Zurich, Switzerland

Wir haben uns bei dieser Rundfahrt zu den Seehunden sehr wohl gefühlt.
Eine spannende Strecke. Gut organisiert. Sehr interessante Kommentare in Holländisch und auf Deutsch. Es gab sogar Feldstecher. An Bord gibt es auch Snacks und Souvenirs. Und für Personen mit Handicap gibt es einen Treppenlift. Natürlich gelang man auch zur Sandbank mit den Seehunden. Distanz etwa 150m. Das Boot wird auch gewendet, so dass die Passagiere auf beiden Seiten in den Genuss kommen.
Es lohnt sich eine halbe Stunde vor Abfahrt dort zu sein, denn dann beginnt das Boarding.
Es gibt in Zieriksee einen grossen kostenlosen Parkplatz gerade hinter dem Damm.
