To do in Zierikzee & Zeeland

Our suggestions for your road trip(s)

DISCOVER the best of Zeeland’s Historic Towns & Nature

With Mondragon as your pied-à-terre, we would like to introduce some of the highlights of our local area to you. We're proud of them.

There are lots of great places to explore close by, within walking distance, or further afield by (electric) bicycle and even further away, by car.

Find out where you’d like to visit online at home and book - wherever you want - in advance via the hyperlinks. And just to be on the safe side, ask the hotel reception for exact opening hours, directions and / or restaurant reservations.

Mixing and matching is allowed. In fact, we highly recommend it!
