Every weekend there is plenty to do in and around Delden. Once a month there is a regional market, the Twickel Foundation regularly organizes walks or visits and in the cafes and churches there are often concerts and performances on Saturdays and Sundays. To give visitors to our website an idea of the activities in Delden during the weekend, we publish an overview every Saturday morning in ‘Weekendje Delden’. Tips and activities can be sent to editors@nieuwsuitdelden.
Also this year, during the Heritage Days (Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 September) there is a lot to see in Delden again. No fewer than 11 ‘monuments’ will open their doors or gates this weekend. Unfortunately, the Twickel Water Tower is closed this year due to a shortage of volunteers at Vitens. Fortunately, there are many other places of interest in and around Delden.

Exhibition Sports & Games Orangery
What sporting activities did the inhabitants of the castle enjoy in the past? The ‘Sport & Games’ exhibition in the orangery shows that it was all about conviviality and health.
