Zuuk is a hamlet in the Netherlands, south of Zwolle, in the province of Gelderland in the municipality of Epe.

History

It was mentioned around 1390 as Groot en Klein-Zwtwike, and means "southern neighbourhood".[2] It is not a statistical entity,[3] and the postal authorities have placed it under Epe.[4] In 1840, it was home to 533 people. Nowadays, it consists of about 150 houses.[5]

In the 17th century, there were several paper mills in Zuuk.[5] The Zuukermolen is a watermill which was originally from the 18th century. In 1990, it was restored, and generates electricity.[6] The hamlet was cut in two by the construction of the A50 motorway.[5]
