    The historic town house on the Veere market is a must see. A great building

  • The town hall was built in the 15th century, the tower with the carillon in the 16th century. The town hall was built by the Keldermans family from Mechelen, who also built the town hall of Middelburg. The badly damaged figures on the facade were replaced with new portraits during the restoration in 1931-1934. The old facade sculptures are now in Museum De Schotse Huizen.

  • Nice picturesque town. Unfortunately sometimes overcrowded.

    Grandma's Sneupwinkel in Oudestraar is worth a visit.

  • History of the Town HallThe town hall of Veere was built between 1474 and 1517 by order of Hendrik IV van Borsele, by the Flemish master builder Andries Keldermans (ca.1400-1481), city architect of Mechelen (B). It was designed by Evert Spoorwater (deceased in Bergen op Zoom, 1474). For centuries, the inhabitants of Veere and the surrounding villages were governed from the town hall. In 'De Vierschaar', the space in which sheriff and aldermen administered justice, this atmosphere is still tangible. Paintings and historical objects, including the bronze fists, are proof of Veere's heyday. The town hall collection also includes historical portraits of the Princes of Orange, which hang in the wedding hall. It is a late Gothic rectangular building with cantilevered small towers at the front. The facade of limestone is still almost in its original state. The dormer windows are probably a later addition. Between 1931 and 1934, the town hall was thoroughly restored. The town hall statues, originally polychrome and made in 1517/1518 in the studio of Michiel Ywijnsz in Mechelen, were then replaced by new ones from the studio of Professor W.O. Wenkebach. They represent the gentlemen and women of Veere from the illustrious Van Borsele family. The original sculptures have been displayed in the sculpture room of the Scottish Houses since 1950. The town hall has a Louis XV platform from 1749 with the saying: Gehoorsaamheyt Godts en de Overheyt / Weert der menschen Ongeluck. The coat of arms of the Oranges was chipped away during the French period and is still blank today. On the left in front of the facade, the shaming stone, on which the punished were put on display, and above it a chain of stones, with which slanderous women had to walk through the city.
    Behind the town hall is the tower, built by Adriaen de Muer from Bruges between 1594 and 1599. At the top a wind vane, a warship with five flags, three of the Van Borseles, one of Orange-Nassau and one of Zeeland. In the tower a rare beautiful carillon of 35 bells, 24 of which date from 1735 and the last 11 bells were added in 1949. A carillon concert is one of Veere's charms. The interior layout of the town hall largely dates from 1699 when the Vierschaar was enlarged.
