Vlissingen is situated at the Northsea. It has a 2 km long promenade. Start your walk at the marina and walk all the way along the beach to the dunes, at the other end of the boulevard.
Interesting to know is, that the Vlissingen boulevard used to be an old dyke. Until the 15th century the sea dyke was about 500 m further into the sea. There where people are swimming or surfing now, used to graze cows and sheep way back in the 1400's.

Here's my favorite spot: on the beach! As you can see it's a fine sandy beach and there's always a little breeze. Sometimes a hard breeze, that's when I need the windscreen!

In the newer part of Vlissingen there's the residential area, in the older part you will find the shopping streets, restaurants and bars, etc. And some beautiful buildings!

    Nice town. Great pictures. Did you notice the modern abstract buildings on the east (? towards the train station) end of town? Quite a contrast to the rest of the town. Thanks, Joe

    Your son is studying here. I did study here (ages ago of course). Very nice place to hang out as a student :-)

    Nice pictures of Vlissingen! I had a very happy summer there in 2000. I went every day along the promenade. One of my friends graduated from the school there - while he was there he liked Vlissingen so much that he decided to move there permanently.
