Sluiskil is inextricably linked to activity. From the very beginning, with the construction of a lock (sluis) in 1648 in the kil (channel). The village owes its name and existence to it. Thanks to a port and ferry service, Sluiskil started to grow. But the activity did not only bring prosperity: part of Sluiskil had to disappear when the canal was widened and Sluiskil lost his heart. During the walk around Sluiskil peace and quiet predominates and activity is usually hard to find. In the distance you can only see the wind turbines and blue sugar silos. Only almost at the end, with a view of the car traffic and the swing bridge, is the activity back. Then you are in a charming nature reserve, the Sluiskil tunnel turns out to be deep underground. Talk about a changing landscape.
