Although very severely restored in the 19th century, the damage was very well corrected in the 1990's. Beautifull examples of medieval city fortifications, along with the neigbouring Muurhuizen they set you back to the 16th century.

At the end Northern of the beautiful, intimate Kleine Spui and Grote Spui, lies the Koppelpoort, built around 1425, but 'restored', and given its present appearance in 1886. It is unique in Europe, because it can control both traffic overland, as well across the water....More

very sweet old town worth the trip, you have a central street full of shops and a couple of nice squares which are populated with restaurants and pubs. The gate is a nice place to enter the city.

Don't get fooled by the train station or the business buidings on the outskirts of Amersfoort. If you venture into the city center, you'll discover a charming town with obvious medieval roots and historic buildings all over.

The well preserved gates are being used every day as pedestrians and cyclists whiz through them and vehicles go around them. We enjoyed the cool brick passage ways on a warm summer day.

The old city was really scenic with lots of cafes that were reasonably priced and very pleasant. The canals don't smell bad and the streets are very clean. I love this town. The people are friendly and respectful of others. I can't believe that tourists...More
