1. Wilhelminafontein

Show sight on map

On the Brink in Deventer there is a Wilhelmina fountain. The monument was unveiled in 1898 on the occasion of the inauguration of Queen Wilhelmina. The monument is by the hand of the Deventer city architect J. A. Mulock Houwer. The construction of this fountain - incidentally not as a Wilhelmina monument - had already been planned in 1893, when the Deventer water pipe was completed. Lack of money then forced to abandon the construction. In 1898 the opportunity arose to install a fountain. The monument - whose cast iron parts were cast by Nering Bögel - limps on those two thoughts. Contrary to what the inscription on the pedestal suggests, the monument contains no further references to the queen. On the pedestal is the City Maiden of Deventer, made by Wilhelmus Gerhardus van Poorten. It is provided with a bay leaf and a shield on which the city coat of arms is printed.

2. Broederenkerk

Show sight on map

The Broederenkerk, officially the Roman Catholic Saint Lebuïnus church, is a church in Deventer, built between 1335 and 1338 by order of Eleanor of England, then Duchess of Guelders. Before the church was built, a monastery had already been founded on that site around 1300 by the Franciscan Friars Minor. Although the brothers left the monastery and church permanently in 1579, the informal but completely established name of the House of God reminds us of their centuries-long presence. From 1579 to 1799 the church building was, with a short interruption, in use by Deventer Protestants.
