Everyone in Twente knows that shopping is good in Rijssen. It is bursting with stores, and local shopkeepers have known for years - often from generation to generation - to attract people to Rijssen to put on some nice clothes. Because there are fashion stores galore. Not for nothing is Rijssen popularly called "fashion city of Twente.

Shopping city

Just a little different

You read about it more and more these days. Shopping streets that all look alike. Fortunately, Rijssen does not participate in this. The center is still dominated by local entrepreneurs with their own store formulas. Nice and different. Seems like you're really on vacation.

At home in all markets

On King's Day, the whole of the Netherlands throws its junk on the street to sell to the shuffling public during the free market. In Rijssen they do it differently: during the summer months you can do your bargain no less than five times during the Lommerdmarkten. And that attracts a lot of folks. And what about the weekly markets? Those are in Rijssen every Monday morning and all day Saturday.

Rich past

To Rijssen's rich past, you don't have to look long. How about the Park Building. This 'Old Lady' was built over a hundred years ago 'to maintain and entertain' the workers and she still does. A little further on is the Rijssens Museum. Another beautiful building. Here you can learn everything about the (industrial) past of Rijssen. Want to know even more also visit Pelmolen Ter Horst.

Cycling and hiking in Rijssen

Are you in a knot with yourself...aren't you? Well, soon you will be! Because the Twente Cycling Network is a chain of nodes. In Hengelo and its surroundings there are many of them, absolutely worthwhile to cycle through the countryside here. We understand that cycling all the nodes is a bit much, but fortunately you can create your own route. Be creative and enjoy the unique Twente countryside!
