Zutphen boasts numerous museums, gardens, merchants’ mansions, churches and warehouses.
On the Whisper Boat, you can find out how the Hanseatic city of Zutphen acquired its wealth.
Although you can explore the city under your own steam, the Whisper Boat is an excellent alternative. You sail past historic buildings along canals, discover breathtaking spots along the River Berkel, which meanders through Zutphen until it joins the IJssel.
An enthusiastic volunteer, who happens to be the skipper, tells you about the history of the city. He knows the waters like the back of his hand and navigates them expertly, which is just as well because there are plenty of obstacles.
