Terneuzen Things to Do: 4 reviews and 4 photos
This small town advertises itself as 'the most Flemmish town in The Netherlands'. This is certainly partly true due to the language spoken in this town, which is almost the same as on the Belgian side of the border, and due to the architecture of the old buildings. Mostly this is probably true due to the masses of Belgian tourists who visit this town, foremost on sunday, when all the shops are open (which is not usual in The Netherlands). The Belgians come to shop for anything, but one of the (main?) attractions are the sexshops, which are located in the high-street between groseries and record-shops as well as between bars and the cinema.
A nice walk is around the center of the town over the rampart (see the picture). The central building is the Saint Willibrordus Basiliek.

The Saint Willibrordus Basiliek is the central building in the drawing. On the right you see a fox in men's clothes. This is the Fox Reynaert, a mythological figure.
Address: 20 Kilometers to the East of Terneuzen.
