Accommodations in Rouveen

The Dutch church village of Rouveen (in Low Saxon Roevène), together with IJhorst, Staphorst and the nearby hamlets, forms the municipality of Staphorst in the province of Overijssel. Rouveen borders Zwolle through the hamlet of De Lichtmis and has more than 3000 inhabitants. Together with the village of Staphorst, Rouveen is a typical example of ribbon development along the Oude Rijksweg, which has a total length of about 8 kilometers and ends on the south side at De Lichtmis. The village has its own national anthem: the Rouveen national anthem.

In the center on the Kerkplein is the large characteristic reformed church. There are also several other churches, also of Protestant denomination. At the same time, the local middle class is well represented for daily needs; However, there are no large chains located in the village.

The Rouveners have a great sense of their own village. This is reflected in annual events such as the Munnikenslagloop, the clog racing spectacle, a party week, a horse inspection and competition and the car rodeo on King’s Day.

On the Kerkplein in Rouveen is the Milk Can Monument, a tribute to the last milk churn, which was scrapped in 1998 due to the use of milk tanks and automation. The milk churn monument was created by a playful action by a group of friends at the turn of the year and was financed by the local independent cooperative dairy “De kleine winst”.

In total, the town of Rouveen has 116 entries in the national monument register, the vast majority of which are farms.
