History of Harderwijk as a fishing and Hanseatic town

Harderwijk is a Hanseatic town with a rich history that is present throughout the city. Large parts of the old city wall and its gates are still intact today, as well as the old University, some convents, and old trader's houses. Many old buildings have become shops, restaurants, galleries, or residences. In the small port, you will still see many of the traditional boats "Botters", which remind us of the old fishing town of Harderwijk.

Waterfront City

The days when the "Zuiderzee" was a source of fishing are long gone. for over fifty years now, the polder province of Flevoland is located off the coast of Harderwijk. The Boulevard offers a great view of the young city of Zeewolde (Anno 1984) with its almost two hundred modern windmills. In recent years, the "Wolderwijd" and the "Veluwemeer" have become an El Dorado for recreation and water sports: sailing, surfing, and kite surfing, as well as a boat tour. 

The Veluwe Nature Reserve is close by

Outside the city, you will find a different world: the Veluwe, a vast world of greenery and tranquility. Forests, heathlands, and sand drifts a a nice contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city. You will find beautiful forests, as well as the "Beekhuizerzand", a unique sand drift with its unique flora and fauna.
