Fictional Map of a Theoretical (yet Improbable) Subway Map of the Dutch City of Zwolle (A2 paper size; frame not included)
Welcome to the City of Zwolle, home to the country’s most overly extensive metro transit network. We ran out of space to build railway tracks on the surface, so we decided to just start digging.
For the convenience of the international visitor, this map has been translated into English with the highest degree of literal accuracy, ensuring that no confusion will arise whatsoever when finding your way around the blue-fingered metropolis on the Ysle. Now you too can explore this beautiful city without being put on the wrong leg or feeling like you have been sent from the cupboard to the wall.
Take a smooth ride from the northwestern district of Townhedges all the way to the village of Windy Home in the southeast, or skip the busy city centre during the weekends by hopping on at Pancake
Dyke and getting off at the Cock Camp. Traverse the entire Floodplains area while pondering the natural beauty going over your head, or leave for an adventurous detour all the way to the historical streets of Weaponfield and Wassup.
The unique Zwolle Metro Transit Network is available both to the weary commuter seeking an easy and accessible method to get from Aa Gardens to Blackwater Alley, and to those audacious pioneers looking for the road less travelled. Pay no heed to the pretentious voices in the Randstad saying ‘why would you even want to go there’, ‘what does a town this size need a metro for’ or ‘excuse me, I’m trying to get to work, stop harassing me with random questions about Zwolle’. The Zwolle Metro is truly something you have to see in order to believe.
