Twente is a region in the east of the Netherlands, located in the province of Overijssel, generally described as the region between the rivers Regge and Dinkel. The following towns and cities are close enough to where I live that I would consider a job there if I really wanted to leave my current one (smaller towns near these I might also consider):

  • Almelo
  • Enschede
  • Hengelo
  • Oldenzaal

Twente is not the same as the Achterhoek, which is located farther south, in the province of Gelderland.
