Pleasant surprises await those who take the time to visit the village. The ‘Bruine Vloot’ spends the winter months in the marina. And those visiting around Ascension Day are rewarded with either the Nationale Sleepbootdagen (a tugboat festival) or Zwartsluis onder Zeil (a sailing festival). The museum in Sluuspoort exhibits a wealth of information on traditional crafts, reed, peat and birds.
