From a small settlement on the Ee in the 10th century it grew into an important city, where trade, craft and fishing flourished. Due to the growing wealth and status, the citizens of Zierikzee were offered city rights again on the 11th of March 1248 by King Willem II. The time of growth in the medieval era was followed by a time of disaster due to fires, shipwrecks, epidemics and floods. The 17th century was characterized by a second flourishing of trade and fishing. In the 18th century the city started to stagnate and the number of citizens shrunk drastically.The large industrial developments barely impacted Zierikzee. Unlike other cities the old buildings were spared. The wealth of monuments (569 in total) are viewed as treasured properties and have been discovered by tourists since the 70s. Today Zierikzee, with around 11,150 inhabitants, is the administrative seat of the new municipality Schouwen-Duiveland and thus has a center function. In the historical city center with many shops and cozy terraces there's also enough to do for tourists.
