Arnemuiden is a small city of around 5000 people in the municipality of Middelburg in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands. It is located on the former island of Walcheren, about 3 km east of the city of Middelburg.

On the 23 September 1338, at the start of the Hundred Years' War between England and France, a naval battle was held near Arnemuiden. It was the first naval battle of the Hundred Years' War[1] and the first naval battle using artillery, as the English ship Christofer had three cannon and one hand gun.[2]

It received city rights in 1574.

Until 1997, Arnemuiden was a separate municipality. Arnemuiden has a railway station - Arnemuiden railway station.

A substantial part of the inhabitants of Arnemuiden have been a fisherman in some part of their life. This explains the immense popularity of tattoos and fishing ship earrings in the village.

"De klok van Arnemuiden" is a Dutch song about the church clock at the Arnemuiden central market.
