    Had a lovely day out here our 7yr old loved all the play areas and the go karts were a big hit he had great fun on the climbing wall. We had loads of fun at the mini golf. Great value for money you could easily spend all day here we only spent the morning to early afternoon. Would defiantly recommend

    This is the place to visit when in Zwolle. Super building. Small coffee place with pastries inside. Museumkaart valid. Sometimes interesting exhibits.

    You really can play games on original machines, from Pong in the 70s to the most recently released consoles! So happy to see games I played as a kid and had forgotten about! It's a great collection, we spent hours here, and it wasn't too crowded, even in the school holidays. Would absolutely come again.

    Worthy.
    Nice way to start the visit in the city.
    The tower has four floors to visit. Each served for a different purpose. Well maintained. Good explanations.

    Mostly frequented by Dutch tourists, it has a very nice city centre... very walkable, the usual beautiful canals and the main square is lined with a handful of restaurants. Children enjoyed playing around outside while we relaxed in the evening.

    We had a guide who told us al about the history of the building. The building itself is great. An old monestary with still a few monks. Great art and paintings too.

    The main building dates from 1866 (architect Nicolaas Kamperdijk). At the time it was a class I station along with Dordrecht railway station that was built in a similar neoclassical style. Both stations were considered large and well-facilitated by Dutch standards. Zwolle station is a major hub in train trafiic towards the North of the Netherlands..

    At the moment the station is being renovated. I hope they will address the confusing numbering of platforms. Ask NS personnel about directions, as to make sense of the map is rather time consuming. The station is 900m South from the central square (Grote Markt) in Zwolle's old town.

    The landmark of Zwolle is the tower of the "Onze Lieve Vrouwe" church, nicknamed in Zwolle "De Peperbus" (The pepper pot). This is due to the possible similarity of the top of the tower to a pepper shaker. The tower was constructed in the 14th and 15th century. Later additions caused the nickname to be adopted. It is possible to climb the tower for a nice view of Zwolle and surroundings.

    Pleasant garden with lots of modern art. 7.5 EUR entrance fee, including catalogue. You can have a drink there but no possibility to eat. If you take your time you can easily walk around for 2 hours. Very friendly staff.
    Mind the opening hours!
    Free parking.

    We've been meaning to go to this museum for a while. I like songs of Herman and also his very interesting art.

    The entry of 5 euros is extremely reasonable and there are 3 rooms filled with art work, personal effects from Herman and there is also a video.

    The gift shop is also reasonable. We picked up 2 copies of artwork that we liked and it is printed on linen paper making it quite luxurious. We were also given a lovely cotton bag to take them away from at no extra charge!

    Lovely museum that is very affordable.

    The park is located outside the town centre of Zwolle. It's quite big green park for various activities. The petting zoo corner is for the young kids. There is also playground with climbing and slides and on the other side, there is sport park with skate park and basket ball court. We can see a historical dike "Marsdijk" from 1311. It's a nice park with a pond and good walking path, wheelchair accessible

    We found this place and stopped for a light lunch. We sat outside and had superb views of their occupied stork's nest as we took our break. Quite special and lovely. We had pancakes which were tasty and enjoyed. Good price too

    Service was okay. There seemed to have been some new staff who caused problems but it was all resolved easily and with good humour.

    Lovely place, especially for families. Do venture up onto the river bank

    This historic Catholic church was built in the 14th and 15th Century. Part of the attraction is the landmark tower, the "Peperbus". The church was decommissioned during the Reformation (if decommissioned is the right expression), and reinstated as Catholic church in the 19th century. Since about 20 years the church was elevated to Basilica by the Pope. I added some pictures of the inside of the church, in particular pictures of stained glass windows, which I like to admire. Visit this Basilica with the "Peperbus" when making the round of charming Zwolle.
