Deventer was already an important town in the 6th and 7th centuries. As a reminder of its ancient origins, the Berg Church or Saint Nicholas Church and Berg Quarter have been completely restored. The streets lie in a medieval pattern and are lined with stately patrician houses. Thanks to its location on the IJssel River, Deventer was an early trading center and important member of the Hanseatic League. Throughout history, the IJssel has been used for trade and military purposes. Enjoy the lovely countryside with its windmills, numerous thatched roofs, sheep grazing in groups, and bountiful woods.
