Portal of Flanders


The Portal of Flanders has been the port information center on everything to do with shipping, locks, ports and the Canal Zone for 32 years. The foundation aims to promote public interest in maritime activity in and around the territory of Terneuzen. Since 2017, the Portal of Flanders has also been an information center for the construction of the New Terneuzen Lock. An important day attraction for Terneuzen.

The Portal of Flanders originally focused primarily on the Sluizencomplex (the hydraulic works). This remains of great importance but in addition the foundation will also have a broader maritime orientation.

Terneuzen as a maritime city, The Canal from Ghent to Terneuzen, its relationship with Vlissingen and the Westerschelde. After all, the city of Terneuzen has one of the largest ports in the Netherlands.

Flanders Portal has a great ambition. This ambition can only be realized with the full support of our stakeholders and sponsors. The foundation is entirely dependent on the commitment of volunteer staff. Both elements are the basis of being able to function of the Flanders Portal.

We connect with our environment. We believe in partnership and cooperation based on the belief that together we can move forward.
