Goes, Zeeland’s foremost shopping destination
With almost 300 retail outlets, Goes is a real shopping Mecca. From large department stores to eye-catching small boutiques. Most shops can be found in and around the characteristic old town centre. It’s the perfect place to look for that elusive bargain.
Don’t forget to look around as you shop, as you wander its medieval streets, narrow alleys and past historic buildings. Our tip: explore the town by joining in one of our town trails.
What’s there to do in Goes?
Goes is a welcoming town where there’s plenty to do. Its pavement cafés, bars and restaurants are sure to give you a warm welcome, whether it’s for a five-course meal, a high tea, or just light refreshments. With views of the expansive marketplace or the old town harbour. On Tuesday and Saturdays, the marketplace is abustle with traders and shoppers browsing the stalls for all manner of things.
The Goes-Borsele railway is a steam preservation line in Zuid-Beveland. In the tourist season old steam trains ply back and forth on a dedicated section of track between Kwadendamme and Hoedekenskerke. Along the way, sit back and watch the Zeeland countryside roll by. Why not break your trip at one of the stations along the way and see some local attractions? It’s a real treat for kids!
