Of dams, dikes and dunes, the Vrouwenpolder

10.1 km wandelen - Walcheren

VVV Zeeland

Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart, around Vrouwenpolder, narrow dikes and the banks of Veerse Meer lake carrying you forth.

The Vrouwenpolder wonderland is old polders, with small inner dikes for boundaries. Beside the sea, the gentle curves of the dunes, and past the Veerse Meer to see, oh, a drop or two of water, endless as it is.

When Walcheren was inundated, at the end of WWII, the landscape changed forever. The Vrouwenpolder offers a glimpse of what the land once was, blithely bumpy meadows and hawthorn hedgerows.

The walk takes you past the once-stately homes of Elzenoord and Twistvliet, just recently restored to – somewhat – their former glory. Nearby Fort Den Haak, named after a sea fort, is a nature reserve you just pass by, too.

Available at all VVV Inspiration Points in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen and though www.vvvzeeland.nl/shop.
