About Twente

Twente (or Twenthe) is a non-administrative region in the eastern Netherlands, probably named after the Tuihanti, a tribe that settled in that region in the beginning of our era. Twente contains the most urbanised and easterly part of the province of Overijssel. It's approximately the region bordered by the rivers Regge and Dinkel, the border with Germany and the province Gelderland. Outside the large cities (three large cities of Twente are Enschede, Hengelo and Almelo), Twente is a region with important nature areas such as the Lutterzand on the meandering Dinkel.
