Activities Out and about
No matter where you may find yourself in Middelburg, nature is always only ten minutes away. The beach, the woods and meadows surround the Zeeland capital. You can best explore Middelburg and the surrounding area by foot or on a bicycle. We dare say that Middelburg has the most beautiful backyard in all of the Netherlands.
Discover Walking and cycling trails
You can best explore Middelburg and the surrounding area by foot or on a bicycle. We recommend that you walk through the city and then take the bicycle to see the surroundings on a lovely afternoon. You can easily combine these two in one day. Or you can enjoy breakfast in town and then bicycle towards the beach and the woods and back again in the late afternoon for a drink on a terrace. You can do this any time of year, but winter is our favorite.
