Zwolle City Wall

Zwolle (2010 population: 120.000), a former member of the Hanseatic League, has some parts of their city walls beautifully restored. Zwolle is located 50 miles northeast of Amersfoort.

  1. when you see something like this, you can almost imagine what it must have been like in medieval times.

  2. This is quite the place, still today. What a wonderful place to visit.

  3. I'm often reminded, when reading your blog, of the chaotic nature of European history - also the wonderful variety of architecture.
