Mooirivier is a great base for exploring the village of Dalfsen and the town of Ommen with their convivial shops and cafes. The old Hanseatic town of Zwolle is nearby, and is well worth a visit. They would recommend the recently renovated De Fundatie museum with a great view of the old town from the top floor, and the Waanders bookshop in De Broeren - the Netherlands most beautiful bookshop. The castles and estates route through the area is not to be missed and is highly recommended for cyclists and walkers.
