Along the river IJssel is the smallest town in Gelderland: Bronkhorst. Who visits the Achterhoek on a trip, needs to
see the place of Bronkhorst. In Bronkhorst getting lost is no issue: the little city has one main street and a pleasant square,
where everything is bustling with activity: from hotels and diners to crafts and a small museum.
Altogether a place to be for a nice and pleasant morning of or afternoon out.
Through the main street with lots of small shops one arrives at a tiny market square. Everything in this town is small, the market square too, but small is certainly not
applicable to the atmosphere within the city. At the edge of the square you will find several restaurants, as well as silversmiths, gemstones dealers and other artists
find their home in the town. Especially in summer when life also is out on the streets, there is a lot to do for tourists in Bronkhorst. Don't forget to visit the
Charles Dickens Museum in Bronkhorst. Around the museum figures from his books arranged do come to life. So it may be that one of the characters from the books of Dickens
appeals to you through live theater from the window on the second floor. All these activities together contribute to the athomsphere of a small thriving town.
It is advisable to combine a visit to Bronkhorst with other outings in the Achterhoek. Examples include: a visit to the Posbank, Vorden town with seven castles, or the historic center of Zutphen.
Parking can be done at the tourist hub just outside the town. Here you can also drop the car if you want to cycle through the surrounding countryside of Bronkhorst.
Who has time during a day trip can reach the town or leave it via the ferry across the river IJssel. Enjoy the water flowing slowly below your feet during the crossing of the river.
