Battle for Grolle 2017

The sixth edition of the Battle for Grolle took place on 20, 21 and 22 October 2017. A record number of 1600 re-enactors from 15 different countries fought alongside on the battle field. This year, approximately 30.000 spectators visited Groenlo, to share the experience of the recapture from the Spaniards by Prince Frederik Hendrik. A large number of these visitors came from across the German border. The sun was seen regularly causing the streets to be crowded with strolling people enjoying the authentic atmosphere while having a bite and a drink.
