WHAT TO SEE AND DO IN AMERSFOORT

Amersfoort is a wonderful city, with lots to see and do for visitors. Marvel at the magical Koppelpoort, climb the medieval Onze Lieve Vrouwetoren (Tower of Our Lady), shop or browse along the canals, and visit one of the city’s museums or theatres, or the Dierenpark Amersfoort (Amersfoort Zoo). From Long John’s Pub&Hotel, many of Amersfoort’s sights are only a short walk away. Or rent a bike, a launch or even a canoe to explore the city in a special way!
