Zweeloo is a village in the municipality of Coevorden, located in the province of Drenthe, The Netherlands.

Zweeloo was a separate municipality from 1819 to 1998, when it was merged with Coevorden.[1] Zweeloo is known for its Reformed Church that was built back in 13th century.


The rural church of Zweeloo was erected in 1252. On a one-day trip from Veenoord, in November 1883, Vincent van Gogh brushed a well-known sketch of this church with a shepherd with his flock in the foreground.
