Ambassador’s favourites

Siri Worm plays for the Dutch national team and also plays for FC Twente. Besides her football activities, she is also the ambassador of Doetinchem. She knows everything about the city she grew up. “My favourite place in Doetinchem has to be Grutstreet, there are so many restaurants and cafes there. It’s a great place to hang out with friends. The atmosphere is amazing. Doetinchem is a small city but there’s a lot to do for visitors.”
