Go to the tourist information at the Deurne Market square.
The first registration of Deurne was in 754. Then it was called 'Doornhe' which means something like 'Place with rose shrubs'. In medieval times it had its own lord. From those days we still have the old church and the two castles. It suffered a lot in the Spanish-Dutch war (1568-1648).
In 19th century the town was important because of te turf winning. In these days many houses were built which are still to be seen. In the beginning of 20th century the docyor and artist Wiegersma made of Deurne a center of art. Many known artists came to Deurne and left their paintings in the house of Dr. Wiegersma, which is a museum now.
After the second world war Deurne grew bigger, and now has about 30,000 inhabitants.
