Hanseatic City of Harderwijk

The city of Harderwijk is bustling with life! The trade of the past has given way to cozy stores that offer, among other things, a wide range of clothing, gift items and local products. Artisan baked specialties such as "Zeebeer" or Frisian rye bread can be found in the pastry shop "De Ouderwetse Bakkerij". De Zuivelhoeve is the right place for cheese, nuts and other delicacies for a drink or on bread. On the characteristic Vischmarkt you will find a variety of terraces where you can sit down after an active day with a good glass of wine or a delicious meal.
