The Grolsch Veste of football club FC Twente is located opposite. After this, you walk another 5 kilometers to the city center of Enschede, where Enschede train station is the end point of this route. So get on the train and travel easily to Hengelo with one of the Blauwnet trains and from there you can enjoy a carefree day outside.

According to the most common explanation, the name Enschede goes back to 'An die Schede', which probably referred to a swampy border area. Enschede emerged in the early Middle Ages as an agricultural settlement. In the eighteenth century, the textile industry developed and Enschede grew into the most important center of textile production in the Netherlands.
