The bell tower
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.
Address: Market Place - Veere
Directions: Sealand - Walcheren
Detail of the windows
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.
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.
Directions: Next to Middelburg in "Sealand"
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
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
Address: Veere - mainstreet
The town hall seen from the river
Different pictures, different photo shoot angels. But i think this monument in Veere is worth it to stroll around and take different pictures.
The belfree tower is a landmark in Veere, seen from every corner and so special, the bells themselves are nominated as the best in the Netherlands
Address: Central market place
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.
Playing children- a donation by the Rabo Bank
A remarkable statue on the central market place. "Playing children"
A donation by the local "Rabo Bank" at their opening in Veere.
A piece of art by Phosse van Daele
Not only this piece of art, but also the town hall and many pubs and shops are making your day and reflecting a dutch atmosphere.
Address: Market place
Directions: Veere center
