Amersfoort's greatest treasure is its history. There are more than 650 monuments and narrow streets and canals that let you relive the Middle Ages. You can see and feel this history while walking the photo route. So you shoot the perfect picture at the most beautiful locations in Amersfoort!
Start at the fairytale Koppelpoort
This gate is both a water and land gate, making it unique in the Netherlands. It dates from 1425 and is part of the city's second walling.
When you walk under the Koppelpoort towards the center, you have the next "wow" moment: Grote and Kleine Spui.
Tip: pop into the Drie Ringen for a beer at Amersfoort's oldest beer brewery!
Stroll the bustling square with history
The route then takes you to the city's most beautiful square: the Onze Lieve Vrouwekerkhof. Enjoy a cold drink on the cozy Krankeledenplantsoen. You will then overlook the photogenic Onze Lieve Vrouwetoren.
Tip: Photograph and climb this 98 meter(!) high tower for a stunning view. If you go with a guide, you'll also learn a bit about Amersfoort's history.
Feast your eyes on the Muurhuizen
Then walk through Muurhuizen and imagine yourself back in the Middle Ages. When the city began to expand 1380, a new city wall had to be built. The old wall was torn down and from about 1500 houses were built with the material from the old city wall. Plenty of places to take beautiful photos!
Close at the Monk Dam
Finally, shoot some snapshots of the Monk Dam and then dive back into the center to enjoy a bite to eat or a drink.
