Zutphen is an IJssel River (Rhine River) cruise port and town in Holland's Gelderland province, wit population around 50,000. Zutphenis approx 30 km (19 mi) northeast of Arnhem. River cruise ships in Zutphen dock at Houthaven Yacht Harbour.
The settlement was founded in the 11th century (as Zuidveen) and granted town status in the 12th century. This makes it one of The Netherlands' 3 oldest towns - preceded only by Utrecht and Deventer. Zutphen was one of the Hanseatic League (Deutsche Hanse/Hansa Teutonica) group of towns which were Europe's largest and wealthiest during the Middle Ages.
Zutphen's largest and oldest building is St Walpurga Kirche (Walburgis Church/11th-century) with Librije (public library added to the church in the mid-16th century). The downtown is one of the best-preserved in northwestern Europe, housing hundreds of buildings from the 13th-14th-15th centuries.
As cruise port, Zutphen was included in the 2021 schedule of Phoenix Reisen with the riverboat Rhein Prinzessin. Next table shows the 10-day "Rhine with Rhein Prinzessin" itinerary roundtrip from Germany (Dusseldorf).
