foto stadswallenwandeling veereOp de gloednieuwe wandelroute langs de verdedigingswerken van Veere vind je borden met uitleg over de historie van de stad in het Nederlands en in Duits, Frans en Engels. De vertalingen voor deze borden zijn afkomstig van team SBText en zijn gemaakt in opdracht van Promotie Zeeland Delta.

Veere is een ontzettend mooi historisch stadje om te bezoeken en deze wandeling is geweldig leuk. Je krijgt veel meer mee over de historie van de stad dan op een normale wandeling en de monotonie van het lopen wordt onderbroken door hier en daar een trekvlot of een paadje door een koeienwei. Kortom, een dikke wandeltip waarbij je ook de kunde van Team SBText kunt bekijken.
