What place could better acquaint you with the true lifestyle that is so typical of the province of Zeeland than its capitol: Middelburg? Once the city that, after Amsterdam, harboured the largest number of historical buildings. Nowadays, Middelburg is still home to a large number of beautiful monuments. This part of the country is best known for its agrarian, reclaimed landscape, adventurous tilt-cart trips and delicious butterscotch candy. But what most people don’t know is that this town offers a relatively large and varied selection of shops with few large chain stores and a high number of independent, leading stores that are well worth a visit. Attractions and festivals are very common in this town, there is always something going on in Middelburg.
