Hellevoetsluis Travel Guide: 44 reviews and 71 photos

A Harbour City with around 40 000 people.

Hellevoetsluis is a City with
around 40 000 inhabitants, this City was an important Marine Harbour in the Middle Ages.
Dutch sea heroes ,de Ruyter, Tromp,and Piet Hein, spent much time here.
Hellevoetsluis is a growing community where a combination of watersports ,history ,and a great area for walking and bicycling atracts many visitors.

This '' Jan Planken '' dry dock is a big part of Hellevoetsluis.
Reparations are going on and will be going on untill 2006.This 200 year old dry-dock will be repaired and the goal is to make it a
'' Cultural Historical Center.''
with a distinct '' Maritime '' caracter. This of course will bring in new visitors ,and that is what the community wants of course.

Anke Thea brought us here to Hellevoetsluis on that nice Saterday afternoon in September .
She gave us a wonderful tour ,and
A T is so knowlegable about this Island of Voorne -Putten.
Thank you Anke Thea for being such a great Tour Guide.

    Seems to be a popular venue if they are already expanding the housing. Looks like you had a good time :o)
