Italy has the monopoly on squares which are "outdoor living rooms". Surely the splendid climate in Italy helps, the beautiful crumbling architecture, the outdoor cafe tables and the Italian way of life. But here in Deventer, on this Tuesday with pleasant weather, the Brink, the...More

De Brink is a nice square for a lot of events but also a great place to relax, have something to eat or a drink. The square is lined with many bars, clubs and restaurants

We decided to go to Deventer from Amsterdam to see another part of the country. It was a pleasant train ride, and we enjoyed seeing the downtown and having a nice lunch. It is older than Amsterdam, and has a lovely compact downtown area.

De Brink, surrounded by majestic old houses, is the largest central square in the Neths. Each week(end) filled with one or another event/activity. Music, movie, market, street theater, etc. Never a dul moment.

At least once a week there is a market on the square. In spring and summer there are lots of events like art and open air cinema. Just a great place to sit drink beer and watch the scenery

De Brink is a place to be when you are in Deventer. It is a beautiful square where you can find historic buildings. Not a place to visit on a car but bicycle only.

We revisited De Brink during 'non Dickens festival' time and that gives a different perspective. But, not doubt, De Brink is still the place to be when you visit Deventer. Lots of shops, restaurants and a lot of public space to walk and explore. This...More
