Zwolle was also voted to be the 'greenest' city in Europe during the ‘Entente Florale’ horticultural competition in 2006. Zwolle provides plenty of places to visit when it comes to recreation and tourism in a natural environment. The historic facades, city walls and towers, the 600-year-old Sassenpoort gate and star-shaped city moat, flanked by monumental merchant’s homes and trees still characterise this city, and its beautiful alleys and impressive fortifications still beg to be explored. We then cruise to Amsterdam.
