Zwolle

A card from Zwolle, the capital city of the province of Overijssel.



In medieval times, Zwolle was an important and wealthy city, a member of the Hanseatic League. Many of the buildings erected in those glory days still remain. Just north of Zwolle's railway station lies its compact medieval centre. Most of the walls once surrounding it have been demolished, but it is still clearly delineated by the defensive canal.

Distance: 184 km (114 miles)
Travel time: 9 days
