“Nice historical place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

The historical Abbey of Middelburg (1100 AC) is located in the city centre and is used for relaxing, music concerts, museum and other city activities. The atmosphere is nice and relaxed with a historical background. Every year there are two music festivals located in the square of the Abbey namely Jazz Festival Middelburg and the Zeeland Nazomer Festival. There is no better place to listen to music and enjoy a drink or two.

“Lange Jan tower”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Great views, but we were not able to go outside at the top like we hoped. Also, there is only one claustrophobic stairs for up & down, quite difficult if it is busy.

“zeeland museum”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

The museum was a bit of a disappointment. The tapestries depicting the naval action against the Spanish are excellent, but that's about it. The rest was low key and could almost be summed up as junk. Some of the things you would expect to see, like traditional Zeeland dress were not on display. The entry fee was rather expensive considering that, but worth it if you want to see some of the best tapestries in the world.

“Beautiful venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

I attended a conference in the abbey and it was a really beautiful place. The staff at the Roosevelt Study Centre in the abbey were also very friendly and the event went exceptionally well.
