The beautiful city of Apeldoorn is surrounded by greenery and offers you rest and relaxation. Explore famous attractions such as Paleis Het Loo, the Apenheul and Queen Julianatoren, as well as the cosy city centre. In the middle of the Marktplein, where the weekly market can be found, and the nostalgic Raadhuisplein, the city's square for terraces, stands the Oude Raadhuis. Underneath the spot where a terrace now stands, there used to be a church. The now dilapidated church was demolished in 1842 to make way for the market square and town hall. The foundations of the old church were discovered during excavations. Metal lines depict the foundations on the square.
