'Plechelmus basilica' in the centre of town. It really dominates the skyline of Oldenzaal. It doesn't matter from which side you enter Oldenzaal, this is probably the first thing you will see. You can visit the Basilica and the tower in Juni, Juli and August : The tower on Wednesdays at 14:00 and the Basilica on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 14:00 - 16:00
An excellent bar, good choice of beers, some tasty snacks and a friendly welcome, just what Bonio likes about a cafe. Recommended and hope to revisit in the future.
De Boeskool (white cabbage) symbolises the former rural Oldenzaal, where the cabbage was one of the mean products on the fields.
The local city water pump is still running (although) it's not really running, but just triggering the tap).
But Oldenzaal is not only about history and old buildings. There is some new architecture as well, like the shopping centre 'De Driehoek'
Whenever you come and visit us you will meet my great son Hidde.
He`s the best that ever happend to me!
Carnival : statue of the Kadolster Mennekes. This is one of the many carnival clubs in Oldenzaal.
This is the statue of the Saint Plechelmus, which the Basilica was named after.
