Deventer’s history and the other Hanseatic cities.
Deventer is an old hanseatic city and was immediately the most important Hanseatic city for the Netherlands. It competed with Bruges and Lübeck and then did very well. The flowering period of Deventer was the years of the early Middle Ages around 1400. It was then one of the most important cities in the Netherlands and perhaps also Europe. The city was famous for its 6 year markets that lasted 2 weeks per market. The whole of Europe came to trade in Deventer. The Good Friday market is still a remnant of this.
Until the seaports removed a lot of trade and Deventer had to do it with the IJssel, which was also bogged down. The trade was taken over by the Dutch Cities and Deventer was left behind with a beautiful city, but it did not yield much trade anymore. The Industrial Revolution in the 19th century changed this again. Bicycles, lighthouses, food cans, beds and everything else to do with metal, was made here. The iron ore (primal) was won at Deventer. The longest road from Deventer is still called the Oerdijk.
That is why Deventer is also called an industrial city with many metal companies (Auping, Ardagh and Nefit) and the printing industry is also well represented here (Roto Smeets) because of the printing press that made its appearance here early on. Much more information about the Hanseatic cities can be found at:
Recreation area Bussloo:
Plenty of opportunities for swimming, walking or golf.
Paleis het Loo in Apeldoorn
The preciously decorated rooms give a picture of three centuries of habitation by the Oranjes, while the reconstructed gardens with their waterworks and gracefully lined flower beds breathe the atmosphere of the 17th century. Because of its beautiful location in one of the most beautiful nature areas in the Netherlands, a visit to the palace in every season has its charm.
The principle was simple: people have more fun with animals when the animals are having a good time and can do their thing. So no monkeys in cages and no bars. But large, green and natural outdoor stays in a wooded area.
For over 100 years the most fun family amusement park in the Netherlands for the whole family.
With more than 60 crazy attractions the children do not get played out here ….
