To Steenwijk? Yes indeed and along with its surroundings really worth a visit. Steenwijk is an ancient fortified town located in the Kop van Overijssel. Take a fortified walk with a city guide and learn all about its history. Walk, sup or sail through the much quieter Giethoorn-Noord. Eat an ice cream at the little harbour in Blokzijl. Learn about history at Prison Museum Veenhuizen. Get on your bike and enjoy the diverse landscape. Explore the Weerribben-Wieden with all its waters and reeds. Take a break for coffee or lunch in one of the cosy villages in the area such as Vollenhove, Oldemarkt, Paasloo and Zwartsluis. Visit the Colonies of Weldadigheid. Imagine yourself on the set of "Dowton Abbey of Overijssel" while visiting the beautiful Villa Rams Woerthe. In short, there is plenty to do in Steenwijk and its surroundings, so be sure to spend a night there. And do so at B&B De Stadssingel in Steenwijk.

Listed tip near De Stadssingel!
Imagine yourself for a moment on the set of Downton Abbey and visit Villa Rams Woerthe. Built in 1899, it belongs to the Dutch variant of Jugendstil and Art Nouveau. It is not a museum, but a Museum House and that means touching is allowed. Dagblad De Stentor described a visit to Rams Woerthe this way at the time: "Sit down in the richly decorated dining room of the Tromp Masters and imagine yourself in 1900, on the set of Steenwijk's own 'Downton Abbey'. Imagine how in a moment the servants, through a side door, will rush in; their arms full of trays of food. What's on the plate this evening? Rissoles of sweetbreads, roast chicks with apricots, shipping lobsters and cabinet pudding, of course. After dessert, the men belly up in the next room, the Men's Room, with a good brandy under their noses and a cigar in their heads. And once the meal has subsided a little, there is dancing. Waltz, polka, polonaise maestro!". Slip into one of those classic armchairs, pull open a cupboard or drawer, feel the evergreens in the orangery. No attendant to give you a slap on the wrist. On the contrary, the many volunteers in the house enhance the experience with extra stories, fun facts". And that's exactly how it is, you are back in time for a moment here.
We hope you enjoy discovering Steenwijk and its surroundings.
