Unveiling of spectacular Hanseatic mural building Cultuurkust

On Tuesday, April 26, Mayor Harm-Jan van Schaik officially unveiled a mural on the side wall of Cultuurkust at Kloosterplein. The mural is one of 14 made in other Hanseatic cities.

Hanseatic past

The mural shows elements from Harderwijk’s Hanseatic past. A nun and a ship’s servant can be seen. The nun refers to the old monastery. She folds the cloth that Harderwijk was known for. Gingerbread can also be seen. These pepernoten refer to Van Delft made in Harderwijk. The mural also refers to the now well-known Pietenhuis in this building. Finally, the hanse horse, the cloth lead, the coin are displayed. All objects from the past. The two extras pictured are residents of Harderwijk.

Cooperation Hanseatic cities

The mural is also dominated by the collaboration between Hanseatic cities. Fourteen Hanseatic cities in the German-Dutch border area are connected to each other by means of a new cycle route, among other things via the Hanseatic cities’ cycle route. An international cycle route of 450 km from the German Hanseatic city of Neuss, via 12 other participating Hanseatic cities to the Hanseatic city of Harderwijk.


The painting collective De Strakke Hand is the creator of the mural. The design for the mural has been devised in collaboration with the historical association Herderewich, Cultuurkust, de Strakke Hand and the municipality. The Straight Hands painters make all 14 murals.
