if this is your first time visiting the Netherlands, below you can read more about Deventer and Enschede 

Deventer is a city in the Dutch province of Overijssel. It is a city rich with culture and historic sights. As one of the oldest Dutch citiest — having been founded around AD 768 — it boasts the country's oldest park, oldest library and oldest brick house.


Deventer's small historic centre is very suitable to navigation on foot. The Tourist Information Office can provide themed walking routes, but a casual stroll through the centre will offer lovely sights by itself. 

Deventer festivals

Deventer is home to three cultural festivals:

Enschede (called Eanske in the local dialect) is a city in the east of the Netherlands, close to the German border. The city has a long history rooted in the textile industry, with industrialisation stimulating growth and expansion. After the textile industry came to a halt in the 1970s, the city fell into a slump, but recovered and was rebuilt. Nowadays Enschede is a modern city boasting many educational institutes, a focus on technology and on euregional cooperation. Enschede is a member of the EUREGIO, a European cross-border cooperative partnership with Germany.
