One of the nicest things about Amersfoort is that it is so nice and central. And that's not just because you can literally find the cadastral center of the Netherlands here. No, Amersfoort is also in the middle of many natural areas.
Did you know that Amersfoort is the only city in the Netherlands that borders three national landscapes! The Utrecht Heuvelrug, the Veluwe and Eempolder.
Beautiful moors, sandy plains, rivers and forests.
