Just one visit to this province with its historic Hanse towns like Kampen, Deventer and Zutphen - and you're sold! The majestic trees, the Holterberg, the typical Dutch scenes along the Ijssel, and naturally the castles of the Counts of Gelre, all these give you the feeling that you're still living in the midst of history. Time past has left deep traces in this area, which could threaten to overwhelm you. For some present-day entertainment, the children won't quickly forget Slagharen Attraction Park or the Hellendoorn Adventure Park. And a canoe trip on De Regge or a boat ride through Giethoorn is the only way to finish off a vacation in Overijssel.
