Veere Travel Guide: 87 reviews and 205 photos

A romantic village, not far from Ghent, so ..

I live in Ghent, as neighbour country i 'm attracted to travel to the Netherlands.
First part of the Netherlands, " The "Lower countries" Zeeland is a perfect contact.
Veere is a historical town located at the former island "Walcheren" in the province of "Zeeland". Located north east of Middelburg, another charming city. And at last but not at least, Domburg, about 11 km away from Veere

    Veere does look like a nice place to visit if your photos are anything to go by! I agree with your regarding visiting in the 'off-season' for a more relaxed atmosphere.

    What an interesting town (or village?) with great architecture, human and bird population! Pity (or good?) that amount of houses have been reduced during centuries but nevertheless kept the unique features of the town through years Thanks Luc for sharing!
