Travelling // Zierikzee, a small harbour town in Zeeland

With its many impressive historic buildings, Zierikzee is in the top 10 of monumental towns of the Netherlands. A perfect town for a stroll through history.

Even when it rains.

After our walk on the beach of Vrouwenpolder, we visited Zierikzee at Schouwen-Duiveland for a late lunch.
