Vollenhove, was the administrative centre of the former municipal Brederwiede , an old fishing town
on the former Zuiderzee. The old fishing harbour is rebuild as a yacht- or recreation harbour.
The many manorial farms you can find in Vollenhove, are showing a rich long-ago.
The city hall was situated in the manorial farm "Old Ruitenborgh".
With the renovated garden of "Marxveld" and the ruins of "Toutenburgh" these houses
were in early days the possesion of a noble family.
