De Schierstins Cultural History Centre

De Schierstins in Feanwâlden is the only freestanding medieval defence tower north and east of the river IJssel.

Today, this unique building hosts historical and art exhibitions and a variety of cultural activities. At the top of the tower you can see a slideshow that shows how the defence tower developed into an estate.

Other highlights include a permanent exhibition about the author Theun de Vries and beautifully curated temporary exhibitions. Stichting De Schierstins, the foundation that manages the centre, organises a range of cultural activities throughout the year, including concerts, lectures, medieval parties for children and temporary exhibitions. De Schierstins is open from 13:30 to 17:00 Tuesday to Sunday.
