This is Bolletje Beschuit  (the symbol of a rusk) in it’s bakery - also a museum - in Almelo. An agreeable place to have a cup of tea or coffee and an old fashioned “roombol”: a round biscuit/bread filled with cream. The small museum is only to be reached by a staircase, but the shop is beautiful and worth a visit.


Almelo is a very surprising city. The centre has wide squares with connecting passages. And suddenly, looking for a Jugendstil style house, located at  Grotestraat 99,  at the end of a side street you see the forest!

The Tourist Centre VVV is somewhat hidden near the bus-station. 


In the neighbourhood of the bus-station is the Museum for Heemkunde Almelo that harbours the history of the mansion:  Heerlijkheid Almelo (the mansion is only to be seen from afar). Parking is only possible a little further down the street, and not many places at that! Wheelchairs can enter via the back entrance of the museum.
