Tucked away in a corner on the eastern border of the Netherlands, you will find Winterswijk: a charming town that is mostly surrounded by Germany and as such sees many day-trippers that speak with ‘der’, ‘dem’ and ‘das’. That comes hardly as a surprise with a cute centre that accommodates way more than the 29,000 inhabitants of Winterswijk itself and the beautiful surroundings which are characteristic of most of the eastern border. Though known as a low country, anyone heading more to the East in the Netherlands will see a landscape that is defined by modest hills, valleys, woodlands and pastures.
