This walk starts at Hotel Mercure Zwolle. In the city center of Zwolle you will not be able to see. On the Grote Kerkplein, for example, you can see the city pump made in rococo style from 1755. On the Bethlehemkerkplein you pass the fourteenth-century Bethlehemkerk, one of the oldest buildings in Zwolle. The Sassenpoort dates from 1409 and served as a replacement for an older gatehouse. The defenses are still made for the use of bows and arrows, crossbows and spears. The city center was once completely surrounded by a wall and city towers. Three of these have survived, such as the Wijndragerstoren in Krabbestraat. This tower dates from the end of the fifteenth century. You leave Zwolle via the Engels Werk, a large city park that was laid out around 1830 on former fortifications.

Windmill hull De Hersteller on the Eekwal in Zwolle dates from 1807. In 1917 the windmill was partly demolished, because the function of the windmill was taken over by a steam engine. Today only the hull of the mill remains.

In addition to the famous Peperbus, the Van Rossems also found another iconic building: the contemporary Museum De Fundatie with that enormous egg on the roof. Of course they also had an opinion on this. Go and have a look yourself.
