Hanseatic city, fortified city, student city, festival city, culinary city. Those are some of the many names given to Zwolle.
The old city centre, inside the city walls, is where you’ll find many monumental buildings, such as the Sassenpoort from
the 14th-15thcentury, an intact part of the old fortifications. The city’s icon is the “Peperbus”, a 600-year-old tower with
beautiful view of the city and the IJssel Valley.
Nowadays, Zwolle has many terraces, bars, restaurants, fun shops and hip concept stores, a great museum,
‘De Fundatie’, and the most beautiful bookshop in the Netherlands, ‘Waanders In de Broeren’.
Zwolle is also proud of its 3-Michelin-starred restaurant De Librije, located in a former prison from 1739.
This is why Zwolle is worth a visit for groups:
- Zwolle is a mini metropolis with a rich history, fun shopping streets, hip concept stores, many terraces and bars, a high-profile museum, along with the best restaurant and the most beautiful bookshop in the Netherlands
- Waanders In de Broeren is an amazing place: a monumental church, decorated in modern style with traditional elements from the old monastery church, and it’s full of books. It’s rightfully known as the most beautiful bookshop in the Netherlands
- Sailing through the canals around the historical city centre means relaxing fun and it’s much more pleasant (and less crowded) than a boat tour in Amsterdam
- You’ll find the best restaurant in the Netherlands, Restaurant De Librije, in the courtyard of a former women’s prison. Feel free to have a look in De Librije’s shop. Here, you’ll discover both delicious delicacies and great wines
