There is a good reason why Brouwershaven is a popular destination among tourists. Whether you come for a cultural or indeed an active visit, Brouwershaven has so much to offer.
Brouwershaven is inextricably linked with water. The small city has a rich fishing history and is situated directly on the lake of Grevelingen. It is one of Zeeland's protected town and cityscapes. The waters of Brouwershaven are best explored by taking a canal boat tour. It will take you along the Zeeland Bridge, Plompe Toren and the Oosterscheldekering water works. During the summer months, you can sail along on a historic sailing ship from the unloading wharf. The harbour extends right into the centre, creating a charming atmosphere.

On the market square, you will find the statue of Jacob Cats, also affectionately known as 'Father Cats'. This poet was born in Brouwershaven. His childhood home, at 7 Noorddijk, is still standing. Jacob Cats was an important figure in the culture of Brouwershaven.
