A neighbourhood with a special story
After the fireworks disaster on 13 May 2000, the neighbourhood arose like a Phoenix from its ashes. After the initial years of rebuilding, a neighbourhood has emerged that in all respects can boast of its results with its innovative and sometimes controversial architecture and the omnipresent glimpses into the textile industry past.
City planning with ideas of inhabitants at the basis and the history as a source: on 24 November 2007 Enschede won the Gouden Piramide (Gold Pyramid)- a government award for excellence in commissioning work in architecture.
Knowing more means looking with a different eye. Prepare for a surpise!

Tailor made tours
The story of Roombeek, its art and architecture, is the perfect day out for families, friends or colleagues.
“We found the guided tour in Roombeek very interesting. It has shown us a lot of modern Dutch architecture. Because we were with only 8 in a relatively small group, we learned a lot, which would not have been possible in a larger group. We liked the the committed and lively presentation very much”.
We did like the guided tour very much. She spoke the language well. The way Ttia conducted the tour was very pleasant indeed. We wish that she may give many guided tours and will share her extensive knowledge in the days to come.”
“Very informative, very committed and inspiring. Thank you very much.”
