Enschede is a true musical city. With the Nationaal Muziekkwartier (lt. National Music Quarter) Enschede has a beautiful music- and theatre stage at its disposal. Six cultural institutions are housed under one roof; the Wilminktheatre, Muziekcentrum Enschede, Metropool Enschede, the Nationale Reisopera and the Nederlands Symphony Orchestra. Offering a wide variety of classical and contemporary, rock and musical and soul and jazz, the Nationaal Muziekkwartier has something for everyone.


Next to this there are a number of smaller and more intimate theatres and cinemas. The many art galleries and exhibitions, where all varieties of visual arts are reflected, complete the cultural diversity.
