Monika takes us on a family-friendly weekend escape to Middelburg in the Dutch province of Zeeland in the south-west Netherlands.
If you want to visit the beach in the Netherlands, the tiny, coastal province of Zeeland is a great place to start. Off the tourist trail, Zeeland is a holiday destination for locals in the know. But there’s more to Zeeland than just sand dunes and beaches; it’s also home to fascinating small cities like Middelburg. Zeeland makes a nearby weekend getaway destination from Brussels and Amsterdam and is perfect for slow travelers.
