The Hanseatic city of Zwolle has a lot to offer you: a beautiful medieval center with centuries-old buildings and attractive alleys, a wide range of shops, cozy restaurants, beautiful parks and interesting museums. Zwolle joined the German Hanseatic League in 1407, an alliance between cities to stimulate trade. Zwolle experienced its 'Golden Age' as a result in the 15th century. Zwolle used to have a favorable location on existing trade routes and the city benefited from this. Nowadays you can still see traces of this rich history in Zwolle. Think of historic decorated facades, the defensive wall, the Sassenpoort, the Peperbus and the star-shaped city moat. All these sights are all worth a visit. Take a walk or a bike ride through Zwolle and admire all the beauty that can be found here. Enough of all the history? Then you can also enjoy shopping in Zwolle. It is the largest shopping city in Overijssel.
