    cinema cinestar enschede

    It's a very big cinema with 10 moviehalls. The chairs are big and you can seat comfortable. You have much leg room. They also have loveseats, the armchair in the middle is left behind so you can hug as much as you want.
    Expecially moviehall 3 is amusing, because they show a lasershow with loud music, smoke and lights. It's amusing and they show it before the movie starts.

    So when you are in the neighbourhood and have an evening off; go and watch the movies.

    You can also have dinner, or go carting/diving at the same territory.

    HAVE FUN!

    lonnekermolen; windmill in Lonneker near Enschede

    It's a pretty windmill standing on a hill in Lonneker, a little town next to Enchede. It's build in 1851.

    Every saturdaymorning you can see how the mill works and they sell home-made flour.

    You can walk around Lonneker and see the nice woods and nature around Lonneker-lake.

    trees at witte veen Buurse

    The "witte veen" is a area of outstanding natural beauty. There's heathland, meadow-land, puddles, woods and a lttle bit of turf-land. It's the home of many amphibians, birds, foxes and even big cows named "schotse hooglanders".

    There is a walking-route marked through the area. You have to follow the blue-walkingtour of 8 kilometres.
    The area is 295 hectare big and lies between Buurse (near Enschede) and de German border.

    It's a nice area to walk, but stay on the roads and don't loose the trail because it's a very large area.... We did got lost in this area and couldn't our parkingspace back. We were at the opposite of the national park and had to go back for a long walk.

    So remind the track!!!
    Have fun.

    The Twentse Welle Museum is a surprising combination of two former museums, one about nature and history and the other about the local textile industry.

    The result is a attractful museum located in the former Roozendaal factory of the Roombeek city quarter.

    Furthermore there are special exhabitions in parallel.

    Visit the old market square

    by ATLC Written Sep 2, 2008
    Oude Markt, Enschede
    3 more images

    Enschede is more a modern city but there are bits and pieces which have that old quaintness.
    Such as the 'Oude Markt' (old market square).

    This was a flying visit so I have no details on the church standing on the square.
