VVV-Route: Van Schelde tot Schelde

35.4 km fietsen - Zuid-Beveland

VVV Zeeland

This route (33,5 km) marks the memories of the 1953 Flood. It is a year that is poignantly unforgettable for the collective Zeeuws mind, for the February stormy night when the dikes were breached and 1,835 souls perished in the waves.

Kruiningen was the first dike to break, from here the water swept over the area, forcing people into their attics and onto their rooves for refuge. Every single local  village has its own part in the tragedy, from Oostdijk to Hansweert and Waarde.

All VVV-Inspiration Points have it, and you can get it from https://www.vvvzeeland.nl/en/shop/vvv-route-van-schelde-tot-schelde/c-26/p-133/
