Programme for Family & Kids

Programme for family & kids


A new programme is available for the whole family.  TAKE COVER!!! School kids learn how to defend themselves in a fortified town.

Would you also like to know about Zutphen’s city walls and towers? Ever wondered what those people whose job it was to defend the town were like? Looking for a nice group activity for adults and children? Would you like to get to know more about Zutphen and have a nice meal into the bargain?

Look no further: this is the programme you want. It is called ‘TAKE COVER’, a programme offered (and  developed) by the Zutphen City Guides and the Zutphen Muuseum.

You take part in a guided tour in Zutphen’s old city centre. The guide will tell you about the fortified town and how the town was defended.

But first of all the children are introduced to Everhard, Otto, Maurits and Menno in the Zutphen Museum. These four men played a key role in the defense of Zutphen. An instruction leaflet helps you – in a playful way – to learn about Zutphen’s history. Of course, the adults in the group can offer assistance and fill in any gaps in their knowledge of Zutphen.

And to top it off  there is a delicious meal for everybody in the city brewery, Cambrinus.

Suitable for adults and children of 6 to 12 years old; for families, family days, grandparents.

Fees: €19,50* per person. Book here for groups of up to a maximum of 20 persons.

Can also be booked without the meal. In that case a fee  of €10,00 per person applies.
