Deventer: A Hospitable Hanseatic City

Deventer is one of the oldest cities of the Netherlands.
As a town with rights and privileges of a municipal corporation and imperial privileges, Deventer became a member of the Hanse pact.
Deventer has a very rich history with you can see at the squares, streets, houses and churches.
What I did before I start a walking tour through Deventer, is getting a tourist guide at the local vvv, meaning information.
You can find the ANWB/VVV Deventer at Keizerstraat 22
phone number: 0031-(0)570-691410

This "citywalk map" lead me to the most important places of Deventer.
My daughter was my guide, she direct me the way and read me all the important information I needed to know.
Walk with us throw this beautiful town called Deventer..............

    I really like your new homepage picture. Deventer is a charming little town. I saw a bit of it with a friend a couple of years ago. We're looking forward to going to Biloxi. Hope the weather will be good. Hugs. Lori.
