De Brink

We revisited De Brink during 'non Dickens festival' time and that gives a different perspective. But, not doubt, De Brink is still the place to be when you visit Deventer. Lots of shops, restaurants and a lot of public space to walk and explore. This is definitely not our last 'De Brink'-visit.

Lebuinuskerk

Reviewed By Solodam J - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The church has a different tower than normally a church has. There are some churches in the Netherlands that owns by two different institutions, this church is one of them. The church was owned by the Protestant Church and the tower was owned by the local authority. A big parking area is next to the church. There is also a monument as a remembrance of the resistance in 1940-1945

Speelgoedmuseum Deventer

Reviewed By Timothy S - Eindhoven, The Netherlands

This small museum shows the development of toys in the Netherlands from the past. The collections are not interesting and the arrangement of them is boring.
When I came there was a simple demonstration about toys that were played in the past. This might be interesting for small kids. The demonstration was in Dutch so I could hardly understand the explanation.
In my opinion, just visit this museum only if you really two hours to kill. You miss nothing if you do not visit it.

Bergkerk

Reviewed By crawfie - Aberdeen, United Kingdom

A very beautiful old church at the top of the Berg (must be at least a 20metre summit, not bad for the Netherlands). An impressive vast interior, with much to see in the names of the family graves on the floors. Is the centre piece of a lovely old area of Deventer.

De Adelaarshorst

Reviewed By Leon S

Due to the location being in the midst of a neighbourhood and with the stands running up to the field this stadium really is unique in it's kind. The Deventer football club Go Ahead Eagles has ben playing in this stadium since 1920. The recent renovation in the summer of 2015 included the renewing of two stands.
The ticket prices are (in the current league) €15,- but you will find on non-match days the groundsman busy preparing the field for the next days and taking a look at the stadium on non-match days should be no problem.

Yes, pretty much everyone could get up the stairs and enjoy the view up the 200 feet tower of this church. It pays a handsome 'dividend': the view. Choose a clear sky day for the best result.

Theater Bouwkunde

Reviewed By Anonyma-NL - Deventer (NL)

Good variety of shows and acts. The restaurant can be visited separately from the theatre and is actually one of the best restaurants in the city of Deventer. Small and cosy with excellent food. If you are a vegetarian this is probably your best choice in town because the vegetarian dishes are very, very good. But meat or fish lovers will not be disappointed either. The owner Heleen Boom is a "sommelier" so you can't go wrong with your choice of wine either.

Stadhuis van Deventer

Reviewed By WorldTravelOne - Breukelen Ut

This building has won a prize for 'best building' recently. It is very 'different' and has a warm look and feel. The exposition 'Magistraal' was an added bonus.
