In and around the Hotel
Theater De Spiegel
The theatre is located next to Librije’s Hotel and is the place to be to see famous names and leading productions such as operas, musicals and major ballets.
The ultimate location for anyone captivated by the charms of a smaller, more atmospheric theatre, and who is intrigued by famous, and sometimes not-so-famous, but always surprising performances.
De Verhalenboot (The Storyboat) is a floating storytelling theatre with a magnificent view. Why not come and listen to one of our top storytellers and see the age-old craft of storytelling come to life?
Cinema De Kroon
Fancy spending an evening at the cinema? Then you’re always welcome at the Cinema De Kroon, located in the heart of the city of Zwolle.

Built in 1406, this gate is one of Zwolle’s best preserved monuments and has a rich history. This former city gate dates back to the Hanseatic period in Zwolle, and is surely worth a visit.
Grote of St. Michaëlskerk (The Great or St. Michael’s Church)
This large, triple-nave church was built during the period 1406 - 1466 and is located on the Grote Markt (the main market square). The church features old murals, a four-manual organ and a beautiful pulpit. The tombs dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries and a historical clock provide an indication of the church’s rich history.
