This small town is most likely known for its Zeehondencrèche (seal sanctuary) where, for almost forty years, sick seals and seals washed ashore are taken care of, with the ultimate goal to release them back into the wild. The seal sanctuary has a visitors’ centre where the treatment and care of seals can be seen from up close. The village is also the starting point for many hikers that come here for a walk across the mud flats or the first stretch of the Pieterpad trail. Also the longest walking route (464 km) in the Netherlands, ending in the far south of Maastricht, starts here.
