Comfortable and delightful stays in Zwolle

Welkom at Bed & Breakfast Bij De Sassenpoort. The Sassenpoort is one of the remainders of Zwolle’s Medieval defenses and was the entrance to the city’s centre. As it is a UNESCO monument nowadays, the Sassenpoort is one of the best kept buildings from that period of time.

We are Rob, Alwin, Marlie, Sabrina and Jurriaan and we will be your host at this beautiful bed and breakfast. The bed and breakfast is situated just around the corner of the Sassenpoort in a former house that is designated as national monument. By staying here, you will be able to discover the treasures of the building itself, as well as the treasures of the city of Zwolle.

We are happy to welcome you at Bed & Breakfast Bij de Sassenpoort in the city centre of Zwolle.

Staying in a national monument

Bed & Breakfast Bij de Sassenpoort is situated in one of the finest buildings of Zwolle. This former house in the Bloemendalstraat was build in 1775. Its facade is built-up of bricks and decorated with cornices on Louis XV-consoles. The main entrance has carved patterns and is framed by pillars. In 1900, the mansion was restored and its former glory shone again.As you walk in on the marmer flooring, through the hallway with its enormous ceilings, you will get the feeling of beauty and wealth.

Everything nearby

The historic city centre of Zwolle is quite the vivid one. Walking out of the main entrance, under the wings of the Sassenpoort, you will reach the main square within a three-minute walk.
