We did a citywalk in this lovely historic fortified town. It is not very large but it is nice to walk about in the picturesque streets and stop at one of the terraces. Brielle is best known as a major historical turning point in the Dutch uprising or the Eighty Years' War. In earlier centuries, Brielle was strategically situated on an important waterway to Rotterdam. Brielle is also part of the major European walking route E9 from Portugal to the Baltic states.

Review from January 2017.... This area, is the Asylplein.....one of many 'relaxing' and tranquil places, to 'chill-out', around Brielle.....in the Summer months, when the weather is good, this is a wonderful sun-trap, and most peaceful indeed.....plenty of well-maintained metallic benches surround the Water Nymph Lady Statue.....perfect also, for dog-walkers (and the Dutch love their dogs - so many here!).... Other places to visit - 1) St Cath's Church. 2) The scaled down (in size) Dutch Galleon, on the Canal, not far from t'Zwarte Schaep (at the end of Voorstraat). 3) The windmill of Brielle (opens to the public, on special occasions, and has a really impressive view) 4) Bastion II - quaint, cute, and also open to the public - on certain occasions.... 5)....and do 'do' what I recommend - 'Google image search - Brielle', walk down to the 'sub-island', through the arched walls, over the wooden draw-bridge, and have a BBQ there (it has a small car park). Simply, the best place to have a relax and BBQ - get yourself a disposable one! Magnificent views!!!! Best time of the year? March 31st - OR 'Kalknacht', as it is called - a wild evening of mass Village drinking, and scribbling 'messages',everywhere in liquid chalk......a tradition, which the Police don't seem to like (which I was told 'first-hand' in 2010 - 'You really shouldn't be this drunk and writing " 'JMB was here', as we now know it'ssshhh you....and we guesshhh you wrote the complimentshhh about Chantal Hanse, as they're in English too.....")..........I, on the other hand, 'do'.......the day after? April the 1st.....a celebration of the Spanish being repelled, and defeated.....a wild wild wild day, where the drinking starts at 11 am and goes on, way past 3 am, the following day.....there are 'battle re-enactments', many dressed in military costumes (from that period), and cannons being fired......... but please be aware that if you do, (as I did) in 2010 - and 'turn up' as an English Mercenary (sent by Elizabeth I) - you will be asked by many - 'what the Hell have you come as, and why?' (The locals either don't know - or don't want to admit that the English Mercs were the true heroes of the 'day'. Certainly, far better than 'Academi', from the modern day). Other great days - Brielle Blues, Brielle's Got Fashion, Koningsdag....and my word, do the Dutch drink!!! However, they met their match when I was challenged to a drinking competition in 2009, by a 'certain', Mr Vlug (owner of a nearby bar)......he was 'rather' surprised, by the end.....as were the spectators......

Doing a 'stadswandeling' - a guided walk -in Brielle is a great way to explore the historic centre. We picked up the guide from the tourist information and did the Oranje walk, giving us enough little insights to even keep our teenagers interested. The walk is clearly described (incl. map) in the guide.

Not far from the centre of town this lovely peaceful area is popular with locals. We spoke to a lady walking her dog who explained the following to us. The area is two rows of houses set at right angles to each other, around a central area with a park feel to it. The centre piece is a statue called the "Nymph". Around this are dotted park benches, good ton sit and relax. Apparently the houses are allocated to ex Mariners. An area worth fiding and having a spot of lunch or picnic.
