Enschede is situated in the middle of a wooded landscape with estates, historic farms and vast nature reserves. Along the green edges of the largest city in Overijssel you will find an almost endless variety of marshy peat areas, hedgerows, heaths, winding streams, meadows full of flowers, ponds, rolling farmlands and sandy roads. In addition to a wide range of natural values, this landscape also contains traces of a bygone prosperous textile industry, a rich history of salt extraction and age-old smuggling routes.
