Area Haaksbergen

The first mentioning of Haaksbergen goes way back to 1188, where the lords of Diepenheim had more than 20 estates in Haaksbergen, which was called a parish. Needless to say there was a church before 1188 in this area. The tower at the church dates back to 1565.

The Jordaan family started the textile industry and have been going strong since 1722. That same family founded the park next to Stien’nboer.

A lovely detail is that we are rebuilding a tea-shop in the name of the Jordaan family, after all they gave the building as a gift to us. The last wooden house of Haaksbergen was to be demolished but with the help of the Historische Kring Haaksbergen, the EU and Provincie Overijssel we could put those plans to rest and rebuild it as a teahouse.

The ease centre of Haaksbergen has a cosy village center with market, terraces, shops and historical buildings such as mills.
