Zutphen is a small city located along the river IJssel. Zutphen used to be a fortified town, and there are remains of the city wall, towers and many historical buildings to be seen.
We spend here an extended weekend.
It is about 90 minutes from Amsterdam by train, so you could also make this an interesting day trip.
The first day we started with an 1 hour whisper boat tour to see parts of the city from the water, mainly from the river Berkel. After this pleasant and recommendable tour, we did a 4.5 km city walk that took us to the most interesting sights of Zutphen.
This included a visit to a Synagogue, several "hofjes" with almshouses, parts of the old city wall such as the Berkel Ruin, Bourgonje Tower, Drogenaps Tower and the Wijnhuis Tower.
We ended this day in restaurant Lekker.
The second day we visited the St Walburgis Church with the famous Librije library and its chained books. There are only three of such libraries left in the world! We passed the St Walburgis Church already during our city walk but it was closed at that moment. Make sure you plan your trip well, have a look at the opening times before you start because you don't want to miss this.
We had a free cup of coffee with apple pie here. The free cup of coffee came with the tickets for the canal tour with... more travel advice
