Academiehuis Grote Kerk Zwolle

Grote Markt 18 8011 LW Zwolle

A building over 600 years old, with historical stories and secrets. The beauty of Zwolle's largest national monument is unlocked through audio tours and games. A visit to the book market and a cup of coffee completes the visit.

This largest national monument in Zwolle has just undergone extensive restoration and architectural preservation. Late medieval paintings adorn the walls and vaults. The church contains exceptional interior pieces: the imposing pulpit, the traditional choir screen and the grandiose Schnitger organ; the king among instruments.

The Academy House has a day café and a large indoor sustainable book market where books are given a second life. Young and old can take audio tours and guided tours to learn all about this extraordinary building.

You can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while taking a seat on Zwolle's covered square: the Academy House. Be amazed by the 600-year-old vaults and enriched by one of our audio tours. This is also an excellent place to work or study or find a moment of rest.

The Academy House aims to function as a beacon in the city, actively seeking valuable additions with a positive impact. This can take many forms. From inspiring master classes and lectures, discussion and debate nights, online streaming and podcasting to festivals, coaching and leadership sessions and social events. In short: the largest indoor plaza in Zwolle.
