If your idea of a good holiday is getting away from the cacophony of city life, then a visit to Enschede in The Netherlands can be a satisfactory experience for you. Located in the Twente region, Enschede can be reached by booking cheap flights to Munster in Germany, that’s just 71 kilometers away; if you are already in Holland, it is all the more easier to come to Enschede because it is well-connected by rail and road.
When you arrive in Enschede via any of the cheap flights to Munster, you will discover that the best way of getting around locally is on cycles or by foot or via public transport as parking is pretty difficult and motorized traffic is banned in the city center.
A 10 minute-walk from the Enschede Centraal station will take you to the showpiece of the town Roombeek that is the plushest area with its abundance of buildings designed by some of the most renowned architects. Remember to check out the Twentse Welle museum with its interesting artefacts demonstrating the vast natural and cultural history of the region. The Rijksmuseum with its enthralling collections of 18th century and contemporary art will surely connect with art lovers. The Grote Kerk situated in the Oude Markt is Enchede’s most historic building and a hub of cultural events and weddings. You can inspect a fascinating sundial that was constructed in 1836.
A tourist attraction with a bit of a difference is the Stadshaard Enschede that was voted the "ugliest building of Netherlands" by readers of a Dutch newspaper. The building is richly-illustrated with images of electricity generation and famous symbols of Enschede's history. Move on to a beautiful building – the Synagogue Enschede that is arguably the loveliest synagogue in the entire country. A stroll can be taken through the Volkspark, a gorgeous park where textile workers used to relax originally but it is now a hub of cultural activity throughout the year.
There are quite a few options available as far as hotels in Enchede are concerned. Dining out can be interesting as you can choose from a multitude of world cuisines such as French, Greek, Mexican, Chinese and, of course, the native Dutch.
