Vlissingen is a port town in Zeeland.


Vlissingen is sometimes referred to in English as Flushing. It is the second large town of Zeeland, and has 34,000 inhabitants. The town is industrial in character and is connected by a large canal to Middelburg and onwards to the Veerse Meer inland lake. Vlissingen is wellknown because of his 2,6 km long Boulevard.

Get in

Vlissingen has two railway stations and is the end on the line Roosendaal-Vlissingen. Trains go every 30 minutes. Vlissingen is at the end of the motorway A58 (Eindhoven- Vlissingen).

Get around

You can easily get around by bicycle. The area is well served by cycle lanes and cycle paths. You can cycle along the shipping canal to Middelburg which is only a few km away. You can also cross the Westerschelde, and cycle to Terneuzen, Gent or Brugge. You can also take the bus.



Most visitors take a walk along the Boulevard. Go to the beach for a swim in summer season or a fresh walk at winters.
