Part of the old city wall across the river Eem with a combined gate for road and river traffic. Kept in good repair. Photogenic.

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.

I had received a brochure from my hotel so I had a brief description of where to find the gate and that it was built in the 1400. Quite impressive indeed and would suggest a visit. It is quite easy to find and you could...More

Beautiful old tower. Situated in very nice area with pure dutch vibe. Tower itself had very little to explain the whats, why’s and when’s.

If you visite Amersfoort, this is the place, where you can take probably the best pic of the whole city.

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
