The bell tower - Veere

The bell tower

Town Hall 2

Veere is a cosy historical village, built on the shore of the Western Scheldt
Touristicaly popular in disproportion of it's size. But that is the charm of this romantic village
The townhall itself, a highlight in the small city, located near the sea. I just couldn't get enough of it.
In the near future i will visit an other cosy town : Middelburg, also located in Sealand.
VT members told me that the marketplace and surroundings are as impressive as Veere.

Detail of the windows - Veere

Detail of the windows

The "big church"

Yes indeed a big church for such a small village. Tall windows have been filled with bricks ' see the difference in the picture '
Most probably it was caused by it's war history and the numberous incidents caused by the strong coastal winds.

Directions: Walcheren

De grote kerk - Veere

De grote kerk

De grote kerk

The great Church a big Gothic church with an unfinished tower in Veere dates from 1348. As from 1811 Napoleon Bonaparte, the french emperor even used the Church as a hospital for his soldiers. Later on it was a "house for beggars" Actualy it only can be visited in the peak seasons - a reason to get back, in general for the local musea and the alround romantic atmosphere.

Address: Veere

Directions: Next to Middelburg in "Sealand"

Campveerse Toren - Veere

Campveerse Toren

Campveerse Toren

The Campveerse Toren, builded around 1500 as fortification of the harbour.
A place with a romantic view on the river. The place were you can hire a tourist excursion on the lake, a place with a nice restaurant and hotel, only pricewise interesting if you can manage special rates during non touristic peaks. The view on the lake is impressive

Scottish museum - Veere

Scottish museum

The Scottish Museum

The Scottish trading house and actualy a museum. The scottish house and staple place for import of wool buided in the 17th century by rich traders. Veere was a perfect place trading goods between the former britisch imperium and the golden years of the Netherlands. The facade is unique and so different from the other landmarks in Veere

The mill of Veerle - Veere

The mill of Veerle

The mill of Veerle

The mill of Veerle, i think it is called "the cow- de koe" I just spotted this mill at the crossing bridge in the center of Veere, looking for a nice restaurant called "Ouwe Werf"
BTW : the restaurant itself is offering a bike parking place in walking distance.
