Ommetje Krabbendijke: Core with Spirit (5,7 km)

This detour, a 5.7-kilometer walk along Krabbendijke's most striking landmarks, was put together by villagers. For this detour (purple line on map) you follow the yellow direction arrows with the Kern met Pit logo along the way. You can also extend the route via the other (node) numbers of the walking network. 

  1. De Vate 

The renovated village pond that used to serve as a watering place for the cattle is called in dialect De Vaete called De Vaete. 


  1. Bandstand 

This hexagonal bandstand on masonry base dates from about 1925. 


  1. Mill De Rozenboom 

Round stone upper mill without rack, ground-sailer. Built in 1862 and thoroughly restored in 2013. 


  1. Monument to British Airmen 

This is a monument to the perished crew of a Lancaster. The plane crashed near the Noorddijk in Krabbendijke on May 12, 1944. All 7 crew members were killed. This monument was redesigned and refurbished by young people from Calvin College, and unveiled again in 2017. 


  1. Station building 

This railroad station, on the line Roosendaal - Flushing, was built in 1868. It was probably designed by Karel van rederode. Since 2019, the waiting room has been occupied by Atelier Zeeklei where amateur artists work or give workshops. When they are present, the door is open to travelers and other passersby. 


  1. Glass panel Song Ronnie Tober 

No less than 55 years after the single was released, "Marijke uit Krabbendijke" has been immortalized in glass in 2020. The hit by folk singer Ronnie Tober won out over “Zeeuws Volkslied” in an online public vote. 


  1. Fruit Artwork 

Fruit growing is the beating heart of Krabbendijke. Symbolized by a work of art "Two apples and a pear" at the intersection Oude rijksweg and Meiboom. It was designed by Cok Balkestein of Oostdijk and is rotatable. "There had to be a wind element in it. Wind is part of Zeeland, but also the fruit industry cannot do without it. After all, it is not only bees that provide pollination. The kernel symbolizes the beating heart".
