Date night in Enschede

Want some more quality time with your partner or have been wanting to meet up with that one cute person for a long time? Then there are definitely nice places in Enschede! Here are my tips for a romantic date night in Enschede.

Romantic dinner

A culinary evening is always good, right? Do you both like a lot, like to try new things and are looking for something luxurious? Then a restaurant like Bistro & Wijnbar BRUUT, Lazuli, Café Soleil, Yuzu or maybe even Restaurant Joann is highly recommended. Don't know each other very well yet and looking for something nice and cozy? Then go to the Twentsche Foodhal, Bardot or one of the cafés on the Oude Markt.

To the movies

Cliché, but always good. Look for a nice movie playing at the cinema, preferably a romantic one, of course. The new Vue Cinema is located downtown. Here you will have the ultimate experience with nine movie theaters with wonderfully luxurious reclining seats. Lean back and snuggle up close. In addition, at the Go Planet Parc you will find Kinepolis Enschede, the largest cinema in the eastern Netherlands. Also don't forget the beautiful movie theater on the Oude Markt: Concordia. Which one will you choose?

Escaping together

Do you like a challenge? Go to an escape room! You will get to know each other very well.Let's Escape Enschede offers many different escape rooms, there is bound to be one that suits you and your date. At Room Escape Enschede you can choose between two rooms. Escape within an hour and find out if you are a good team. Did you know that the adrenaline rush you get can make you like each other even more?

Indoor activities

Is the weather bad but you want to do something active? I've listed some fun indoor activities:


Compete with each other and see who throws the most strikes. Reserve a lane at Starballs or Bowling Enschede.

Glow in the dark golf

Miniature golf, but in the dark. At Glowgolf Enschede you pass all 18 glow in the dark holes. Everything is illuminated with black light, this gives a very cool effect. At Sensazia they have a 'Monkey' glow in the dark golf course, where you are also taken into a story.


Go play pool while enjoying a drink at Poolcafé The Bridge, Snooker & Poolcentrum Enschede or Starballs. That way you'll be active and have a nice chat in the meantime.


Darts may not be something you quickly think of, but it can also be a fun activity for a date night. You can do this, for example, at Starballs, or at Café Partycentrum Vrieler. Here you can also have a drink at the bar or have a dance.


Have fun and let the adrenaline flow through your veins! Who dares to go through the corners the fastest during karting at Zero55? The electric karts in combination with a spectacular glow in the dark light show and racing music ensure a date night in Enschede to remember.

Cultural getaway

Discover culture and being in good company. Win-win! For example, visit the Rijksmuseum Twenthe together and see the changing exhibitions of contemporary, modern and classical art. Or go to a theater performance. From an entertaining cabaret show to an upbeat musical performance. There is always plenty to see at Wilminktheater and Muziekcentrum Enschede, De Kleine Willem and Concordia!

Take a walk

When the weather is nice, is it also nice to take a walk together in nature? Walk hand in hand through Enschede's most beautiful parks and chat to each other in the meantime. You can have a lovely walk in the Ledeboerpark, G.J. van Heekpark and the Volkspark. Or go for a more cozy park, such as the Wooldrikspark.
