Vlissingen, Netherlands, is a small city in the Zeeland Province in the Netherlands, located on the Western Scheldt river estuary (Westerschelde in Dutch). The city’s main draw is the boulevard on the Western Scheldt with many cafes. Although Vlissingen is popular with Dutch tourists, most visitors are from Germany. You may as well be approached by shop employees in German instead of Dutch due to the huge amount of German visitors.

Vlissingen does not only have an attractive and lively boulevard with many cafes and a great nightlife, especially in summer, but it also has a long sand beach. Whether you want to find a spot on the beach close to the lively boulevard on summer day or prefer or more quiet area with the Dutch iconic sand dunes, you can find both in Vlissingen. Unlike in the port cities of Rotterdam or Amsterdam, you can watch the massive cargo ships passing by on their way to the port of Antwerp.

Vlissingen, Netherlands, is not just a destination on its own. From Vlissingen you can also visit some other smaller beach towns, which are accessible by frequent buses. While in Vlissingen, the beach area is the most interesting place to visit, Middelburg is only an eight-minute train ride away. Middelburg is a pretty historical city with many seventeenth- and eighteenth-century merchant houses.

You will not find many hostels in Vlissingen, Netherlands. Your hostel in Vlissingen, Netherlands, will be located in the city centre, and because Vlissingen is a small city, it won’t take more than ten minutes to reach the boulevard and the beach on foot. If you want to be right on the beach, you will need to book a hotel. If you prefer staying in a hostel in the middle of nature instead of in the city, have a look at hostels in the coastal town of Domburg, about fifteen kilometers away.
