GREATINGS FROM THE LAND OF THE TULIPS !

Here some information about our beautiful city ZUTPHEN:

Zutphen is a city in the middle-east of the Netherlands that many people would like to visit. Not surprising, because Zutphen has many sights such as remains of city walls, towers and centuries-old buildings that are still in good condition. Zutphen is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands. A Germanic settlement was founded along the river IJssel as early as Roman times. After Vikings in the 9th century caused a lot of destruction during various attacks, the settlement was protected with a ring wall. From the 13th century, a stone city wall with entrance gates and various towers was built in phases.
