The historic center of Goes including the city harbour is embedded in modern residential areas. North of the harbour there used to be a more or less open view on the old city. Now modern apartment blocks have been built here resulting in a complete circle obscuring any free sight. Further north even more urban 'development' takes place. A missed chance, but disregarding the new surroundings, the harbour is still a beautiful place with a pleasant mix of 16th to 19th century houses

We were there visit one museum. The sky is dark and not so many restaurants open so is kind of disappointed.

The city harbour of Goes is a very atmospheric spot and the views all around and towards the white Saint Martin bridge are lovely. Quay names like ‘Bierkade’ (Beer Quay) and ‘Turfkade’ (Peat Quay) remind of the days when goods like beer from Delft and Gouda and peat from Frisia were unloaded here. Today the harbour is a marina for small pleasure crafts. As architecture buffs we were delighted by the beautifully restored and diverse houses lining the quays. Many are from the 18th and 19th century, but some date back to the 16th century, like the attractive ‘gothic house’ at number 11 Turfkade, the ‘Huis de Baerse’ at number 44 Grote Kade and the ‘House of the three Magi’ at the corner of Bierkade and Koningstraat. Behind the posh 18th century facades of Grote Kade many older elements also remain. The small octagonal structure on the quayside at Turfkade (1647), decorated with reliefs of fish, used to house the fish auctioneer while the fishwives were waiting in the enclosed area outside.

If you’re into boats or sailing in Zeeland then this is one port you must have on your itinerary. Approached by a canal from the Oosterschelde through Wilhelminadorp (remotely operated bridge) and the industrial quays you come to the lifting bridge on the Goes ring road. This opens to a timetable that varies from season to season. The canal narrows through some modern housing with a small marina on the port hand. A little further on you come to another bridge again opened on the same timetable and there you enter history. The genuine facades from the 16th century onwards surround a beautiful harbour. Toilet and showers in an historic building with a very modern interior, with washing machine and drier also to hand. Electric points and water on the pontoons. The harbourmaster is very friendly, helpful and informative. The Harbour is very well maintained, the only minor problem is that at times it becomes very busy and boats may occasionally have to be rafted up three abreast. All the permanent berth holders are great company and our annual visit to Zeeland would not be complete without a stopover in this great little harbour.

My wife and I went with friends after a wonderful dinner at a Restaurant around the corner from this location, and it was the perfect place to sit and have an after Dinner drink by the beautiful boats and buildings.
