The city centre of the charming city of Delden dates back to 1333. Many buildings have been expertly renovated in recent years. A visit to Twickel castle and its adjoining estate cannot be missed out on if you’re in Delden.
Monuments with historical value are Wendezoele Museum, de Noordmolen (the North Mill), de Houtzaagmolen (sawmill), the Zoutmuseum (salt museum), the Old Blasius Church and the New Blasius Church. Twickel’s gardens are open to the public from April to October. Entering the house is only possible during de Kasteeldagen (the castle days).
Delden also has many interesting shops and galleries that are almost all open daily. It is also home to numerous events, such as the Streekmarkt Twente (Twente’s regional market) every first Saturday of the month, the Cultureel Straatfestival (cultural street festival) in September, the Hemelvaart Fiets4Daagse (four-day cycling event around Ascension Day), the Twentse Brocante Fair (Twente’s bric-a-brac and antiques fair) in June and the Midwinterwandeling (midwinter walk).
