Hanzestad-Zwolle - -Drone-MarketingOost


Experimental, surprising, striking. The dynamics of this historical and hip city on the IJssel river burst forth. Discover boutiques, delicious coffees, fascinating museums and the best restaurants. The streets of the medieval city centre have a lively atmosphere. Merchants used to rule here, but nowadays it is students, entrepreneurs and creative people who provide the dynamics.

Zwolle is a cultural hotspot. The most startling sight is Museum de Fundatie. The elliptical structure of the museum, also called 'De Wolk', offers a fantastic view of the historical inner city. It also has the most imposing bookshop of the Netherlands: Waanders in de Broeren is housed in a 15th-century church.
