Hellevoetsluis: home port of Michiel de Ruyter
Experience the maritime history of the fortified town of Hellevoetsluis

The versatility of the surrounding area is also reflected in Hellevoetsluis.

The old fortress was built in the 17th century, as a war and trading harbour. To strengthen the fortress, Jan Blanken constructed a sea lock and the first dry dock made out of stone. Hellevoetsluis was also a naval harbour. In these days, the Zilvervloot, the treasure the fleet of Piet Heyn conquered on the Spanish fleet, came ashore here. The Tromp Huys, the dry dock built by Jan Blanken, the Ruyterhuys, named after Michiel de Ruyter, and the Kruyt Huys are just a few of the places of interest in the fortress.

The fortress also houses many fancy bars and restaurants.
