The recreational pool has plenty of cool extras, such as a slide, whirlpools and diving boards.

At Dinoland you combine discovery, learning and active play. Children from 2 to 14 years old will feast their eyes. Both inside and outside there is plenty to experience.

For example, test your knowledge with the Dino treasure hunt and discover all the dinosaurs scattered around the park. Play in the indoor arcade full of play equipment and interactive games, eat a snack in the restaurant, dig out a dinoskeleton, explore in the Paleolab, climb the climbing course, play a game of miniature golf or have fun in the playground! Sounds promising, right?

3. Rent a boat

Ascension Day in 2023 falls on Thursday, May 18. Temperatures rise and the first rays of sunshine reappear. Embrace the weather and rent a boat in Zwolle. Why renting a boat is a good idea? You discover a historic city from the water and therefore see completely different things than during a city walk, for example.

Enjoy the peace and quiet on the canals, behold the amazing architecture and make a stop for a snack or drink. You can choose to explore the center and surrounding neighborhoods, but you can also rent a boat in Zwolle and sail a longer distance. Beautiful places like Dalfsen, Ommen and Hasselt are also in the immediate vicinity of Zwolle.

2. Cinema

Then settle down in a cinema hall for a good (or not so good) movie. There are several options for a movie night in Zwolle. For example, visit Pathé. Or go for something different and visit Filmtheater Fraterhuis.

Filmtheater Fraterhuis is, thanks to its small scale, a special cinema in the center of Zwolle. Choose one of the public films or artistic films and with a big bowl of popcorn on your lap you are provided with a relaxing evening.

1. Karting

Are you a real karting enthusiast or adrenaline junkie and want to drive safely? Then go-karting is for you!

In Zwolle you can find several kart tracks, both indoor and outdoor, namely Kobalt and Kartcentrum Zwolle.
