Bike Touring Highlight
Domburg offers a great beach to Renesse. It is quite generous behind wide dunes, but is partly overcrowded. As a cyclist, but you have the good opportunities just a few climbs next door to go to the beach and you are almost alone.
The bike course goes partly through beautiful groves along the dike and are great to drive even with a child.

The building was built in 1567 on behalf of the city of Domburg at the place where previously a town hall was. The building was not significantly changed since the publication of a Domburg mark by Smallegange in 1696. The facade was rebuilt in 1822. In later years, extensions to the east and north side have taken place. The tower was already equipped with a clock in the 16th century. The bell, hung in the tower in 1913 and perhaps identical to the bell hanging there, was bought by the city of Amsterdam in 1749 and bore the inscription Hendrik Kemper, Amsterdam, 1725. In 1912, a new clock was installed by B. Eijsbouts from Asten in Noord -Brabant. Because the much heavier and thus distinguishable church bell strikes only once in half an hour, the clock of the town hall beats only in half an hour and completely. In this way, they knew what was the half hour (Wikipedia).
