Like many other places in Zeeland, Bruinisse is surrounded by water: it borders on the lake of Grevelingen and the Oosterschelde, making 'Bru' an important fishing village, but also an excellent holiday destination! Thanks to its location, Bruinisse is home to a variety of interesting flora and fauna. So, they have birds, but what if there were seals, too? There is even the option of a seal safari! You will sail past mussel beds and deep river channels until you arrive at the seal sandbank. The location near the water also means: getting active on the water: surfing, stand up paddle boarding (SUP), kayaking: at the Grevelingendam you can take on any challenge!
There is no shortage of beautiful natural areas, sights and activities in Bruinisse. Take a deep breath and fill your lungs with fresh air in nature, dive into the history and discover the many charming and characteristic surrounding villages and towns.
Near Bruinisse you will find the Watersnoodmuseum. This museum is an absolute must if you are interested in this important chapter in Zeeland's history. In addition to the Flood of 1953, you will learn about subsequent reconstruction, the Delta Works and about living with water in Zeeland. The museum takes you along in the experiences of ordinary people with an unusual narrative about water, the rebuilding, and about the floods that are still happening around the world.
The Brusea museum focuses on the rich history of mussel fishing and Bruinisse's heritage. You will learn about traditional mussel fishing here which has been going on for centuries and the modern technique of cultivating mussels through hanging culture. Come along inside the world of mussel culture that still plays such an important part in the lives of Bruinisse residents. Brusea also recounts the village's resilience during various storms and the devastating impact of World War II, after which only a single fisherman's cottage was left standing.
Hooray, it is mussels time again! Mussels are inextricably linked to Bruinisse. Mosselweek (Mussel Week) has traditionally been one of the main sources of income for locals. This is reflected, among other things, in the giant mussel at the village entrance. The village still boasts a large active mussel fleet. Plenty of reasons for the Bruinisse locals to celebrate the opening of the mussel season in the third week of July with the Visserijdagen (Fishing Days). Great food, festivities and mussels: prepare to have lots of fun in a charming atmosphere for three days.
