Saeftinghe Visitor Centre shows you around this unique area. You get experience the nature, landscape, rich history and, of course, the vast saltmarsh landscape that characterises Saeftinghe. There is also a lot for our younger visitors to see and do, including an animated ship that can be sailed over the Western Scheldt.

The visitor centre is the meeting point for our guided excursions and a place where those unable to join excursions, or wishing to stay clean and mud-free, can get to know more about this impressive landscape.
