Overview

Face to face with a container ship in Het Portaal van Vlaanderen. Come and join the fun in the interactive Visitors Centre] at the heart of the Terneuzen Locks. A trip to Terneuzen Locks starts with a visit to the interactive Information Centre and can be followed by a guided tour or doing a tour by boat. The lock complex forms an essential link between the Westerschelde and the Ghent-Terneuzen Canal, one of the busiest canals in Europe. Almost 70,000 ships and boats pass through here annually. Approximately 250 companies are located within the Canal Zone, accounting for 20% of the employment in Zeeland. The port is in a constant state of development and fulfils an important international role, as you will see in our Information Centre.

If you like all things to do with ships, boats, and nautical stuff in general, then you will enjoy visiting these locks and watch them in action as ships & barges are taken up & down, in & out of the Gent-Terneuzen canal!
