Take a trip on the solar train! When the cruise ship docks in the port of Vlissingen, be sure to take a journey on the solar train. Visit the historical city centers of Vlissingen and Middelburg and enjoy the many touristic highlights aboard this wonderful electrical train.
On sunny days the train drives solely on solar energy. It features two wagons and can take 46 guests along for the trip. The eco-train is powered by electric motors that get their power from solar cells on the roof. It is a silent, emission and stench-free way to get around.
The hour-long cultural and historical trip ensures that you see much of what Vlissingen or Middelburg have on offer. The train also supports the Dutch climate campaign. More info on the solar train can be found online.

Zeeland has a historical feeling, with its forts, medieval town houses, churches and harbours. The visitors of the Delta province are astounded by the vastness and diversity. There is so much to discover. There are great opportunities for an active holiday, trips in the wilderness, beach fun and quests to the past. The 30 museums give an interesting insight into life and work in the past.
Cycle along a country lane. Sit on a village bench in the sun and enjoy an ice cream. Delicious, as you would expect. Virtually anywhere in Zeeland you would be under water, or at least have wet feet if there were no dunes or dykes, the Dutch soil is largely under NAP. The famous Delta works ensure that feet are kept dry, through the many dykes and dunes.
Dams, bridges and ferries make every area easily accessible. However ... Zeeland remains an area of islands, from all sides. Each of these islands has its own dialect, region gestation, nature and landscape.
