Harderwijk, Netherlands

Add to my trip(0)


Harderwijk is a beautiful, medieval Hanseatic city. It offers impressive nature, located between the Veluwe national park and the river. The city is rushing with good vibes and plenty of opportunities to enjoy the culture, culinary treats, or a day of shopping. It’s a great city to walk or cycle in, observing the atmosphere and enjoying the beauty of the lake. A forest adventure is just a short walk and the same for the relaxing river.

The city is packed with monuments, history, beautiful streets, beautiful sights, and attractions.

Best Time To Visit

You can travel Harderwijk all year long but expect cold weather and possible rainy/snowy days in most of the year.
Most tourists visit during the nice weather of August or in December for Christmas.
June through August (summer) offers comfortably cool weather. September through November (Fall) still offers nice weather, with a comfortable temperature during the day and chilly nights.
Wintertime (December through February) is cold, and you should expect rain or snow.

quick tipRemember to check the weather forecast a few days before the trip and before heading to the airport.

Rain could catch you all year long so make sure, even in the summer, to pack a light jacket that can also protect you from unexpected rain.

You can find amazing jackets for men, women, and kids on Amazon (I haven’t personally tested these ones).
