Zutphen Hotels

Mini guide to Zutphen


Zutphen is a city in the north of the province of Gelderland, close to the border with Overijssel province in the Netherlands. Once a flourishing member of the Hanseatic League, profiting from the trade on the Baltics, and now a charming provincial town with many reminders of its medieval golden age, Zutphen is pleasant place to visit.

Zutphen is a remarkably intact medieval city. It has been an important member of the Hanseatic League. One of the highlights of the city is the Librije, the oldest still existing public library in Europe. It was founded in the 16th century as a public library and still holds a collection of medieval books.

The church of St Walburgis is an impressive Gothic church with separate roofs on all of its segments, which gives it quite a skyline of its own. Zutphen's old centre is still partly surrounded by its medieval walls, but the Berkelpoort (Berkel Gate), which is built over the river Berkel, is the only surviving city gate. Archaeological finds in Zutphen can be discovered at the Stedelijk Museum.

Visitors can still find pieces of the old city walls which once protected Zutphen from attack. The local tourist office offers 1 hour, 30 minute sightseeing trips by boat on the Berkel river.

There are many nearby attractions, including Kampen, the town of the many towers, where you can visit the largest cigar on earth. Nearby Deventer has many attractions including: the Great Church (Lebuinus Church) and its tower, the beautifully historic City Hall and het Noordenbergkwartier (a very old quarter). The River IJssel makes the location of this town and its surroundings unique.

Zutphen can be reached via car or bus from Zwolle, the provincial capital. There are trains every hour from Amsterdam Centraal Station, via Apeldoorn to Zwolle. Buses leave every hour on average from Apeldoorn. The nearest international airport is in Amsterdam.
