Overijssel

things to do in netherlands national parks to visit

The province of Overijssel, The Netherlands is one of the five provinces that borders Germany and is my favourite province for castle sightings. It seems like a castle can pop up literally anywhere, not that I mind. It makes the whole area even more fairytale-like with it’s foggy mornings, foresty surroundings and castles.

More than 1.1 million people live in the entire province of Overijssel and the area is also known for its many Hanze cities, like Zwolle and Deventer. Within The Netherlands Overijssel borders Flevoland, Drenthe, Gelderland and Friesland. The capital of Overijssel is Zwolle. The city of Zwolle is one of my favourite cities of The Netherlands to visit. Enschede is however the biggest city of Overijssel.

Check out below which cities and places I’ve covered so far. More articles will be added every week, but I’m writing this website on my own so please be patient. Or like we say in Dutch, ‘heb geduld’.
