Veere is a small but attractive town not far from Middelburg. It's one of those small places that the avarage tourist usually ignores. Shame, Veere is a real gem. For such a small place it has a few remarkable pieces of medieval architecture, reminders of a glorious past in which Veere had profitable trading contacts with Scotland. Apart from great architecture there are many more buildings of less importance but which add to the atmosphere. Little has changed in this town in the last century! No modern architecture, let alone high rise. Even the lamp posts still look to be the same. Should anyone want to make Veere the setting for a movie situated in the early 1900's all that needs to be done is to remove the cars and dress up the people.

Although you can hardly spend a whole day here (well you can of course, but you won't be sight-seeing for the whole day) it makes a nice trip when you're in the neighbourhood. A combination with Middelburg comes to mind, which is what I did. In the future I'd love to make it a stop during a bike-trip over the island.
