  • A bookstore in a beautiful church. one of the most beautiful books shops of Netherlands. Nice clear. Large selection of books. Many cards and magazines. On the right side in the Church/Bookstore is a eetgelegnheid where you can have lunch or a pastry. Above his toilets. If you are in Zwolle, you should really visit this bookstore. One downside: the most terrible wrapping paper that I have ever seen

  • The Waanders in De Broeren is an excellent venue where a beautiful church, meets a bookshop and a coffee/lunch place. It is big and beautiful. Not to be missed!  more »
  • What a treat this library situated in the premises of an old convent! There are vaulted ceilings and a beautiful organ, and the whole place is really amazing. That suffering cannot buy anything because I do not know the Dutch! But it is well worth a visit, highly recommended!

  • My favourite place in Zwolle to browse for books, gifts and office supplies. The employees are always friendly and professional. The old church is gorgeous and it's one of my favourite places to meet with friends for tea. If you have the chance, go see it. The people of Zwolle are proud of this with good reason!
  • The location is awesome! This book store and restaurant are in a old church. The space is roomy and open and gives a grand atmosphere. We had a very nice lunch and some coffee. The food was of good quality and the staff was friendly and very helpful. Nice place to visit, have drinks and browse.
  • Absolutely great atmosphere! A nice bookstore in a beautiful former church. Unfortunately the offering of English SF/Fantasy is very limited and seems to diminish even more
  • Went here for a farewell dinner... its so beautiful how the church has been repurposed as a modern library.
  • The building is great, it is located in an old church. The layout of the floors adds to the feeling of the enormous building.
