Hints if coming from the Netherlands or Antwerp:
There are a few options:
- In Vlissingen, there is free parking next to the ferry to
Breskens but check the ferry schedule to make sure you can get a working connection!
- Next, unless you live in Limburg, the A58 + Westerscheldetunnel is the
shortest and easiest route, but there is a 5 EUR toll charge for the tunnel.
- Or you could detour via the Antwerp (rechteroever). This is
cheaper than the tunnel, but the ring Antwerp can be a bit confusing,
and if you want to avoid tolls, make sure to take the long route, staying
on the A1 until Antwerpen Zuid, then following the direction Brugge (A11).
