The closest Goedereede (5 km) of which Ouddorp municipality is a part is certainly worth a visit. It has a very nice-looking village center and a market place that is typical of the town.

The church tower from the 15th century moves (or warms) everyone's heart. The church tower and the accompanying museum can be visited. The view from the church tower is fascinating. In the historic hotel restaurant "the Golden Lion" you can enjoy delicious food and further down the street you will find an old-fashioned bakery, which sells regional specialties and delicious Old Dutch cookies.

Stellendam is one of the 12 places in the Netherlands with a fish market. On Friday, after a week at sea, the fishing fleet returns to the harbor. The real Stellendam shrimp are very well known here, and they are still peeled by hand for a large part. And for those who do not have the opportunity to attend the Friday tour at the fish market, a walk through the harbor area, the fish shops and the many small fish tents will give you an authentic impression of the fishing life of today. For Haringvliet Expo and seal crash, see Excursions and Theme Parks.

A visit to Zierikzee (30 km), the nearest regional town on the island of Schouwen-Duiveland, should certainly not be missing on the list. The medieval cityscape and 568 monumental houses, the many alleys with characteristic houses, the idyllic harbor, the old train bridge and the attractive center offer something for everyone. On the Oosterschelde side, you can look out from the city on the longest bridge in the Netherlands, the Zeeland Bridge (5 km), which is the only other permanent bank connection with the neighboring island besides the Oosterscheldekering.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Middelburg (50 km), the capital of the province of Zeeland surrounded by canals and canals, is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands. The beautiful Gothic-style town hall is a frequently visited and photographed object. With its variety of shops and eateries, the city invites to a pleasant day of shopping. Enjoying a stroll on the Thursday weekly market or a cruise through the canals is also a nice pastime.

A harbor tour (Spido) through the largest port in Europe in Rotterdam (50 km) is not to be missed. The view over the harbors and the city from the Euromast or from an even higher point via the SpaceTower (185m), a visit to the maritime museum or the cube house in the middle of the city are just highlights of what the second city of the Netherlands has to offer. Although Rotterdam is a modern European city, you will also find historic places, such as Delfshaven, from which the famous Pilgrim Fathers set sail for America in 1620. And did you know that Rotterdam is home to the first skyscraper in Europe (the White House from 1900 at Wijnhaven) or that Europe's first pedestrian shopping area (Lijnbaan) was set up here?

In Amsterdam (120 km), the official capital of the Netherlands (the government is based in The Hague), every footstep refers to the glorious past. There is an incredible amount to see and experience: beautiful historic buildings, the palace on Dam Square, the Rijksmuseum with its many world-class masterpieces (with Rembrandt's Night Watch in the first place), the Van Gogh museum, Rembrandt house, Anne- Frank's house, Heineken Experiencemuseum, Madame Tussaud's wax museum, the shipping museum, the diamond mills, the Chinese quarter, theaters, the traditional Dutch draw bridges, delightful canals and the many small canals with its numerous cafés and eateries and colorful street life. In short, with one visit you are not there.

This is a small selection of sights in the area.
