Coevorden City Museum

The oldest city in Drenthe is located in the southeast corner of the province. Already in the Middle Ages, city rights were obtained from the then sovereign, the bishop of Utrecht. At the time, Coevorden was located on an important trade route between the Rhineland and the Hanseatic city of Groningen, the port city of Stavoren in Friesland. All passenger and trade traffic could only pass through Coevorden through a series of cow estates in the streams that converge at Coevorden, through the swamps that surrounded the whole of Drenthe. A convenient location for the bishop of Utrecht to charge toll. He built a reinforcement to protect the route to the north. The castle, incidentally the only one in Drenthe, was a typical military castle on a hill, a so-called motte, with a separate moated castle, the bailey.

The burggraves appointed by their lord have strived for independence for many centuries. The collection of tolls gave rise to many conflicts between the lords of Coevorden and their bishop. This led to a series of battles with Coevorden as the scene of battle. More about the history of Coevorden can be seen in the museum.
