What you absolutely shouldn't miss, if you go to Amersfoort: 

  • Koppelpoort, this particular port is part of the old city wall and has a medieval appearance.
  • Onze Lieve Vrouwetoren, also known as the "Lange Jan/ long John", is the eyecatcher of the city and one of the highest church towers in the Netherlands. There are about 300 steps to the top of the tower, if you are up for a little workout, you can climb to the top of the tower.
  • Muurhuizen (Wall homes), a piece of middle ages in the middle of the city. The houses in this area of the city are made out of pieces of the old city wall old city. It is wonderful to "get lost" in this part of the town.
