Sightseeing Tours in Deventer

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 was designed by the Deventer city architect J.A. Mulock Houwer. In 1893 a fountain had already been planned in honour of the completion of the Deventer water pipe, but lack of money forced the construction to be abandoned. In 1898 the opportunity arose to install a fountain. The monument - the cast-iron parts of which were cast by Nering Bögel - limps along these two lines. Contrary to what the inscription on the pedestal suggests, the monument contains no further references to the monarch. On the pedestal is the Maid of the City of Deventer, made by Wilhelmus Gerhardus van Poorten. It has a laurel leaf and a shield on which the city's coat of arms is printed.

2. Broederenkerk

Show sight on map

The Broederenkerk, officially the Roman Catholic St. 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 Friars Minor Franciscans. Although the friars left the monastery and church for good in 1579, the informal but well-established name of the almshouse is a reminder of their centuries-long presence. From 1579 to 1799 the church building was used, with a short interruption, by Deventer Protestants.
