nice old merchant city at the river IJSSEL. Deventer cake is famous. Tou can get fresh burned coffee beans. The fist Sunday of August there is a very big book market. Around Christmas there is the Dickens Festival soluts of fun. Easy to each by train, bus and car.
There are two great moments to be in Deventer, in summer and in winter, for "Deventer op stelten" and for "Dickens festival". But if you like to walk on old streets full of charm and small nice schopes, every day is a good day to be in Deventer.
