Stadswallen Hulst

Reviewed By HugoColle - Evergem, Belgium

When visiting Hulst one should do this walk around the town. Its beautiful there and on one side you see nature, trees, water and on the other side you can see the small town with churches, market places,.. You pass the gates, ruins, windmill..and that way you also understand the history of Hulst a bit better. Afterwards Always enough choice to have a coffee or eat something.

Verbeke Foundation

Reviewed By Ron K - Copenhagen, Denmark

The Verbeke museum is situated 20 km north of Antwerp. It consists of an indoor section, mostly in unconventional forms such as greenhouse, container, warehouse, and a large park around it with beautiful nature and sculptures, and art installations. Everything is unconventional, unpolished but sparkling at the same time. I have rarely been so thrilled by a visit to an art museum. It is a mixture of Ali Baba's treasure cave, a biology laboratory, a curiosum cabinet and an art gallery. Everywhere you see seemingly random stuff but it is all extremely well thought and planned. There is a lovely section of bio-art, in which nature and artistic thoughts are brilliantly fused. The outside section is a gorgeous 12 ha. large wild nature park in which you will find plenty of interesting art installations, all of a refreshing originality. You will never look to a museum in the same way after you have visited this one. This is worth more than the maximum of 5 stars.

Schoon en mooi aangelegd vakantiepark. Er is voor kinderen van alles te beleven zowel bij mooi als minder mooi weer.
Ook als je niet op de camping staat loont het om in dit restaurant te gaan eten.

Het Verdronken Land van Saeftinghe

Reviewed By LUC T - Boechout, Belgium

Enjoyed a guided tour of this great natural reserve. About 4 hours of adventure through wetlands while the water had receded to its lowest point. Got to know what quicksand means. Walked both on the plateau, as well as in the tidal riverbeds. Learned about the (migratory) bird population, the origin of the pieces of bog that you sporadically encounter and the history of this place. A must, if you like nature. Bring boots (knee-high), reserve clothes and binoculars. Photogear best in your backpack and protected against a possible wet encounter. Not for small children nor the elderly. Crossing muddy gulleys, getting in and out of riverbeds is a strenuous activity!

Reviewed By ArticCynda - Brussels, Belgium

Short summary: service okay but expensive for what it is, lacking refreshments, and difficult to reach.
Elaborate review:
Located on the outskirts of Belsele, in a commercial zone, the location choice of the thermae is peculiar to say the least. The Belsele station is only infrequently serviced, and particularly poorly during weekends and holidays, which makes it even more inconvenient for a touristic attraction. There is a bus stop nearby, but few buses connect to the station so it may be shorter to simply walk (distance ca. 1.4 km) rather than wait for a bus. There are only a few direct trains connecting to Brussels per day, so careful planning is paramount. Poor accessibility will undoubtedly be the most difficult to resolve problem that Katara is currently facing.
The facilities themselves are new and modern. For those seeking a rustic ambient, Katara definitely isn't the best choice, but that is of course a matter of preference. The interior is relaxing, well maintained and tastefully decorated. There is ample space, and few areas give an overcrowded feeling. There is sufficient diversity in things to do, ranging from foot baths to saunas, to (outdoor only) swimming pools, steam bath, relax lounge, jacuzzi etc.
In our experience, the facilities were very clean, and there are absolutely no negative remarks to be made on hygiene or health. Staff is cleaning throughout the day, and most of them are very friendly and helpful.
The only point where Katara is severely lacking is refreshments. There is not a single drinking water Fountain in the entire complex, nor any other kind of refreshment (fruits, tea, ...) which are an absolute necessity for a sauna centered wellness oasis. It is odd that they have not yet picked this up after 5 years of operation. It is therefore necessary for guests to bring water or tea along themselves. Fortunately, the provided lockers are large enough to store all of this.
The thermae are currently undergoing expansion, and the new oriental sauna and relax lounge with beds and sofas are both superb new additions to the site. It seems that the current boiler room has a hard time keeping up with its growth though, as evidenced by the lack of warm water in showers when many guests are showering simultaneously. Occasionally, the water is just too cold for a comfortable shower, even after a sauna session!
At other points, Katara appears overzealous. The surveillance cameras in the changing rooms (!) for example may please the staff's voyeuristic needs but are, needless to say, misplaced. The camp fire next to the swimming pool also offers little extra value but does produce a lot of air pollution.
Although the provided service at Thermae Katara is generally good, the value of a visit is only average due to the very high prices (considering entrance fee, extra charges for basic needs like refreshments, and expensive food and drinks in the restaurant). A visit is therefore only justified when spending an entire day at the thermae and bringing own drinks and snacks along. Katara still has a long way to go until it can offer a value comparable to that of German wellness/thermen.

nice museum with a nice interieur painted and decorated.A visit to the Museum's Department Store is a unique experience for the whole family The history of the region, with the regional dress collection as one of the highlights will be showcased in a special and interactive manner. The museum shows both young and old past times. Do you dare to play the game barcode?
The collection is composed of various regional costumes, agricultural implements, farm wagons, archeology and utensils with an emphasis on the 19th century.
The special architecture, historic buildings and restored unique wall and ceiling paintings add an extra dimension to the museum and its collection.it really is a flash back in time and a journey for whole the family

Basilica of St. Willibrord

Reviewed By George H - Mechelen, Belgium

I've seen this on the Hulst skyline every time I visit the town. It's got quite an unusual tower/spire but I've never thought of visiting the Basilica itself. Until my last visit to Hulst, that is. I took some time out to go for a closer look, and although I didn't go inside the church, I was quite impressed with the exterior and the way the building dominates. If you're in the area it's worth taking a small detour to check this out and grab a few photos.

Interesting windmill to visit. The Miller is always ready to give information about how the mill works and to give a tour around the mill.
He regularly grinds different types of corn for making bread and pancakes. These are also for sale at the mill.
There are special events at certain times of the year with sheep herding Exhibitions on the field next to the windmill

A small museum in the center of Hulst, containing interesting floklore information. The outside area and shed is also very interesting and I did learn about flax here. It was also quite exciting to go up the creaking staircase in the little tower, from where you have a nice view over the town.
