Introduction

Zutphen is a modern small city, with about 46,000 inhabitants. The old centre survived the second world war almost entirely, though some parts of the city were lost. The most damage was done in the Northern parts of the city centre, known as the Nieuwstad (Eng: New City). The centre features a very interesting shopping area and many old, monumental buildings, including one of the biggest and oldest churches of the country.


Stores are opened from 9:30 to 18:00 (6pm) on weekdays, on Friday evening until 21:00 (9pm) and on Saturday until 17:00 (5pm). Some stores open earlier, and the larger supermarkets usually stay open until 20:00 (8pm).

It is a picturesque old town with several brick houses of the 16th and 17th centuries. The most important building is the Grote Kerk, or St Walburgis (Saint Walpurga), which dates from the 12th century and contains monuments of the former counts of Zutphen, a 13th century candelabrum, an elaborate copper font (1527), and a fine modern monument to the Van Heeckeren family. The chapter-house ("Librije") contains a pre-Reformation library which includes some valuable MSS. and incunabula. Unique is, that these old books are chained to the ancient wooden desk they lay on.
