Cycle route from Vlissingen to Westkapelle
Vlissingen, Koudekerke, Westkapelle
Vlissingen has an international background. At the beginning of the Eighty Years' War, the city came into the hands of the Spaniards until the inhabitants managed to get them out of the city; in 1585 Queen Elisabeth received Vlissingen in exchange for help in the fight against the Spaniards. There was the occupation by Germans in World War II and the Inundation of Walcheren by the British Allies. The result of this flooding is best seen in the bay of Westkapelle. Thanks to the Fontainebleau treaty, Vlissingen has also been owned by the French for a while. The descendants of the former conquerors still know how to find this part of Zeeland and that is no wonder. Because even if the residents want to stay Zeeland and Dutch: you can always share the enjoyment!
