The Koppelpoort is a city gate in Amersfoort. It is a combination of land and water gate. The name is probably derived from the East Middle Dutch word Coppel meaning meadow

This beautiful medieval double gate (koppelpoort) has been around for hundreds of years, and is still working! Although not used as a defence for the city any more. If you come here by day, make sure you stay for the night to see it beautifully...More

The old city merchant gate, the Koppelpoort was built in the early 1400’s and has distinct medieval design. Popular with local and international tourists, this UNISCO historic site is worth the visit. Combine it with a city tour and discover this amazing city

Amersfoort is very nice place to visit. Especially if you like medivial places, you should see it. Its very peaceful, there are nice cafes and restaurants around. During summer, sitting near Koppelpoort and watching the sunset is highly recommended! :)

Beautifully historical landmark from the Middle Ages. Amersfoort is a hidden gem in Holland, massively overshadowed by the over-rated crowded and dirty city of Amsterdam.

Ever wanted to see a gateway to an old city: come see this gate. Not just a walkway but also a waterway! Incredible and amazing building. Still in original condition. Beautiful! Very nice place for a photo opportunity. And a lot of bars and restaurants...More

This historic landmark is a must see when visiting the historic centre of Amersfoort. Just include it in a nice walk along and/or through the town. I can certainly recommend a walk in the evening as well when it is beautifully lit.

Actually, I think Amersfoort makes a better base to stay than Amsterdam (and it's so much cheaper). If you are in Amsterdam with limited time, conversely, I am not sure I would choose Amersfoort (sorry) as a day trip... More
