Cycling route Neeltje Jans
Zierikzee, Neeltje Jans
In the old days people believed in the guardian goddess Nehalennia, changed into Neeltje Jans. That is why many ships bore the name 'Neeltje Jans'. Also the ship that, despite the name, ran aground on a sandbar. The working island for the storm surge barrier was built on that raised sandbar and was therefore given the name Neeltje Jans. Now it is an information centre and nature reserve, a joint project of Het Zeeuwse Landschap and Natuurmonumenten.
