I grew up in Amersfoort so am a bit biased but as expected only realized how amazingly pretty the city is after moving to North- America, they truly need to pay some attention to public design here! The gates are nice for a discovery walk around the city centre, following the old city walls. It is not fully intact but... More

Enter through the gate near Koppelpoort at a foggy night. It has an exciting view, that you will feel like you are in a movie.

If your like me you will research the towns and cities you visit prior to departure. My visit to Amersfoort, Holland was no different. The 'city' is surrounded (literally) in history. The 'city' has two walls and inner and outer defence wall/s. The 'city' gates reflect the defensive capabilities of the whole 'city'. Although not open to go inside on... More

Downtown amersfoort is an absolute must for tourist. The outer and inner wall show the history and trade wealth of the town.

The city gates of the old city center in Amersfoort are a great opportunity to get to know more about Amersfoort in the history. As these gates are different in function it is also a great place to take different pictures in Amersfoort. Look at the location (N/S/E/W)and of course the sun before taking a walk to make the greatest... More

It it my favorite place in Amersfoort, it is beautiful in every season and every time of a day. I like it at night when the lights are on.I like it in winter, when it is white with snow and in the summer when it is green.

It's a gate but a very beautiful gat, you pass and go into the city centers shopping area, Muurhuizen and other directions. The gate is certainly a showoff for the power of medieval Amersfoort. This was a town to take serious, no doubt.
