Hardenberg is near the border with Germany, but does not have the sloping landscape. This view of the old centre is hanging in the hall of the museum.

Going over the bridge and turning left you will find parking lots and the VVV Tourist Office is next to the new theatre. At the clump of trees, left of the middle, is a parking lot which is also the market place. From this parking space you can easily reach the main street.


The official name of the museum is Historiekamer (history room) and it’s address is Voorstraat 34. On the picture this is situated straight on over the bridge. It used to be the City Hall and the chamber of the mayor is as it was in the old days. At the back of the building is a very large painting on the wall and across from this spot is a sort of gallery, which is called KNSTSPR – true!. It is a gallery where you can take a course, but also has changing exhibitions.


When we were in Hardenberg there were many roadblocks and that made finding the way troublesome. We could not find our way to the Atelier at the Bruchterbeekweg 16, a gallery.


The Nature- and activity centre “De Koppel” is beautifully situated on the border of the river Vecht; changing exhibitions are shown here.







Historiekamer, Voorstraat 34, Hardenberg: opened from May to September, Mondays through Saturday from 13.30 – 16.30 hrs, but they are

lenient about opening times.

At the KNSTSPR, Wilhelminaplein 3a, we could just walk in.

De Koppel, Vechtstraat 8: opened from Tuesday through Friday from 13.00 – 17.00 hrs and Saturday and Sunday until 16.00 hrs. In the months of July and August it opens at 10.00 hrs.





Not far from Hardenberg lies GRAMSBERGEN. Also worth a visit!

At the square Meiboomplein beneath this beautifull Maypole is the Historisch Cultureel Centrum, with a very extensive exhibition of the river the Vecht – from it’s source to it’s astuary. Opened from Monday through Saturday from 10.00 to 17.00 hrs. In the Stationsstraat is the Keramiek Atelier of Lettie Gerber.
