Merchants from all over Europe sailed along the river IJssel and past the 'Vischpoorte' (literally meaning Fish Gate). This historic place takes its name from the neighbouring fish stalls where freshwater and saltwater fish were once traded. It was one of the oldest and most important gateways of this old Hanseatic city. Deventer has many medieval streets, lanes, historic warehouses and hundreds of restored monuments. The city square, De Brink, is home to the Netherlands' oldest weighhouse, and Deventer also boasts this country's oldest stone house.
Besides standard high street shops, Deventer also has many charming, little boutiques making shopping here a delightful experience. Visit one of the many antique, curiosity and furniture shops or simply stroll through the city's quaint medieval streets, which house all kinds of unusual shops. And naturally you can also enjoy yourself in one of the many cosy café's and restaurants surrounding the charming squares in the hotel's vicinity.
