A day in Veere, Zealand, Netherlands

Veere
A couple of weeks ago my friend Nikki told me about this town she used to go with her parents, how cute it was and that I definitely had to go visit it.

So as Nikki as my tour guide we went to Veere. Veere is located in Zealand, southwest of the Netherlands. Turns out it’s not that far from where I live!

Our first stop was the Grote Kerk (the Great/big Church). Here they organize concerts (mostly classic music) and exhibitions
We also climb the tower (2€), which has a nice view.

After that we went to Oma’s snoepwinkel (Grandma’s candy store).
In this little store you can find more than 101 different kinds of old fashion candy.

We didn’t do much after our lunch. We explored Veere a bit more, went to the town Domburg (more about this coming soon) and then we went home.

Other things to do there is the museum ‘De Schotse Huizen’ (The scottisch museum), studio ‘de Schapekop’ (the sheep head), City Hall of Veere, go camping, go on a bike ride, go into the water, etc.

Lots to do for such a small town.

You can combine Veere with other towns like Middelburg, Goes, Domburg, Westkapelle, Vlissingen and so on. But I will tell you more about those in the future!

    Beautiful place! I’d love to see the church someday!

    I found that, an hour away from where I live (Manila), there is a province (Rizal) that offers so many little adventures like hiking, cave exploration, falls trekking, beach, food and arts. Now we don’t have to fly out or endure 4-6 hours drive just to see something new!
