Hans Warren Walk

The village of Borssele was preserved for prosperity forever by the pen of Hans Warren. Born and bred in the village, which found overnight fame in 1981 when his secret diary (‘Geheim Dagboek’) was published. This walk of 10.7km around Borssele revolves around his poetry – you’ll surely be reading his poems en route.

Warren (1921-2001) published his first collection of poetry, titled ‘Pastorale’ in 1946. Soon afterwards, he started reviewing literature for the Zeeland newspaper Provinciale Zeeuwse Courant (PZC). When his Geheim Dagboek came out, a new genre in Dutch literature was born.

One of Warren’s most beloved topics was nature. He waxed lyrical in expressing his passion for the beautiful Zeeuws land. Some of his work has even ended up on the information panels along the route. Poetry in motion!
