The hanseatic city of Deventer is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands and a very nice shopping city.
Already in the year 768 an Anglo-Saxon missionary built a wooden church on the banks of the IJssel. This missionary’s name was Lebuïnus. With the arrival of Lebuïnus, the foundation of the city of Deventer was a fact. The hotel is 100 meter away from the Lebuïnus church.
And Deventer is also the best shopping city! There are many monumental streets and alleys with various boutiques and shops. And Deventer also has a large number of catering establishments. Delicious food in the squares or in a small restaurant in a pittoresque street. Restaurants, theaters, film house, cinema, dance cafés, cosy and trendy bars, live music hall, we have it all.
If you do not like shopping, you can also make a city walk (Tuesday to Sunday) with or without a guide or stroll along the IJssel, the most beautiful river of the Netherlands.
The city is also famous for the major events taking place in the historic city center such as Deventer on stilts, Deventer Book Market and the Dickens Festival.
And you do not need the car once you have arrived because everything is on walking distance from the hotel.
