I visit here every month.
Meppel is THE city of book printing in the Netherlands. There is also a museum about it which was founded by the owner of the largest printer in The Netherlands: Giethoorn-ten Brink.
The museum was opened by Prince Bernhard, father of the current Queen.
Famous are the Thursday Meppel Day in summer.
Each Thursday there are a lot of bands in the town center and a market. Young and old crowd the streets and dance or listen and drink a beer.
Around Meppel are many interesting place to visit. Among them:

There are quite a few places around Meppel that are worth visiting. However, Meppel is on the brink of two provinces, so you would not be able to detect that if you look at my Travel Page.
