When you stay at a EuroParcs holiday park in Gelderland, a visit to the picturesque, centuries-old Hanseatic town of Elburg is definitely worth it. When you enter the fortress of Elburg, you can imagine yourself in a bustling fishing town during the Hanseatic era. The prosperity of that time can still be felt at the cozy harbor on the former Zuiderzee, beautiful monumental buildings and impressive Vischpoort!
The cobbled streets and medieval alleys with flowers and plants on display are wonderful to stroll through. The atmospheric fortress has a surprising range of shops and many high-quality culinary restaurants with terraces where you can sit down and enjoy something delicious. For those who want to learn everything about Elburg and its history, Museum Elburg with its permanent collection and changing exhibitions is the perfect place. There are also intersting guided city walks in the historic fortress, in which you can take part. Walk under the Vischpoort to the harbor, which is directly connected to the Veluwemeer, and admire the impressive botters while enjoying a drink.
Due to its beautiful location on both the Veluwemeer and the Drontermeer, Elburg is also a wonderful place for water sports enthusiasts. Whether you want to sail, surf, sail or just enjoy a nice swim, the water of the Randmeren is perfectly suited for the warmer days. You will also find several cozy beach bars along the water where you can enjoy a relaxing snack and drink. When you cross the Elburgerbrug, you will find yourself directly in the vast polders and serene nature of Flevoland. Here you can enjoy wonderful tranquility and many walking and cycling routes, both along the water and through the woods. Not to mention that you can reach the dizzying roller coasters of Walibi Holland by bike or by car!
