    just spent a pleasant couple of hours in a very old and beautiful little town called Elburg

    It looks like the people in Elburg would also like to leave the EU

    Looks a pleasant little stop Nikki, and not far from Zwolle. Stayed there a couple of times for Dutch TT. Shame I didn't know about this place then :)

    Yes it’s a bit of a secret gem really. It’s a “Vesting” town meaning it was fortified and has city walls. It was about a 40 minute ride from my house. It’s very old and very picturesque.

    Thanks Nikki for posting. My daughter lives in Amsterdam. I’ll pay Elburg a visit next time I visit her.

    I’ll check to see if it has train station as sadly my wife won’t ride pillion not since I did 40mph on a dual carriage way after promising I would only go slow! Barbara still bangs on about it even though it was nearly 20 years ago.

    By train
    The nearest train station to Elburg is 't Harde, from which you'll have to take a bus to get to Elburg, as walking will take you 90 minutes. Going by bike from 't Harde is an option as well, making your journey from 't Harde to Elburg 20 minutes long.

    By bus
    The most central bus stop is Elburg Centrum, at which the lines 100, 200, 514, 685 and 686 stop. Line 100 connects to Nunspeet and Zwolle, while line 200 connects only to Zwolle. Line 514 connects with the nearby train station 't Harde. Lines 685 and 686 connect to the nearer towns.

    By car
    When travelling by car, Elburg can best be reached via the A6 or A28. When travelling via the A6, use exit 11 (Lelystad Noord) and drive away from Lelystad using the N307. When navigating around Dronten, use the second roundabout to turn onto the N305, followed by a turn left onto the N307 at the next larger interchange. Following this road will take you straight to Elburg.

    When travelling via the A28, use exit 16 ('t Harde) located between Zwolle and Harderwijk. Once you leave the highway, you will see that the route to Elburg, which is just six more kilometers away, is indicated on signs.

    The easiest way to get there is by road. I don’t think there ever was a train station due to owners of the land not wanting to relinquish their land. (Something like that). Anyway hope the above info is useful.

    That’s brilliant Nikki, thanks. You are doing your bit for the Dutch tourist board, no mistake.

    You'd have to take a train to " 't Harde" station, and take a short busride from there.

    Edit: too little too late, obviously... :D

    I shall do more of these little trips either with the Bonnie, Waspy or BabyScoot.

    The Netherlands has such a lot of these hidden gems that I suspect most foreign tourists never know about
