Nice to stroll through the old streets. The Muurhuizen were also the town’s border in ancient times. Very nice tranquile. Also to be admired with a trip in a touristic boat.

You can see that the people living on this street are either very wealthy or very proud (probably both). Each home is freshly painted and full of flowers and climbing plants. It is a short, but lovely walk through history.

Amersfoort central is full of stone houses in old style. I always wander the streets (especially the ones around Mondriaanhuis) to feel the relaxing atmosphere and those part is more silent and calm than the onze-lieve-vrouw. On sunny days you can get your drink and...More

Worth passing by when you are visiting the city. Most of these houses were built in the 17th century and are national monuments. Don't forget to cross the canal and look at the back of the houses and the gardens as well!
