Monolithic gates still protect Amersfoort, a well-preserved medieval city that remains connected to its history. Built into the foundations of 13th-century defensive walls, the Muurhuizen wall houses are one of the city’s most intriguing features. Art enthusiasts should visit the Mondriaan House (birthplace of abstract artist Piet Mondriaan) and the Armando Museum, a collection of works by the famed Dutch painter.

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 was well worth navigating the tricky, narrow streets to see. There was a couple having their wedding photos taken here and I don't blame them. It's a stunning piece of architecture.. We loved our time walking the leafy streets of Amersfoort. It's stunningly beautiful.

Escape Room is a unique real-life game in which you and your team get challenged to solve puzzels and to think outside of the box. Goal: escape within the hour from the mysterious room.The game is exciting, surrealistic, intens, magical, logical and exhilarating - all at the same time! Once you've entered the Escape Room you'll lose track of time and reality.
I played there both Laboratory and Meisjeskamer. And there is only one word to describe it which is WOW. Meisjeskamer has the story, riddles, effects and the entourage. It is one of those rooms which is worth travelling for. When you play, you totally loose the feeling of time and live the story.
I would not recommend to start playing escape rooms with this one because it would be difficult to find many rooms of such a high quality))) But it is definitely worth playing!!!!!!
P.S. Also there is a bar and relax area with computer games and other things. It is convenient to sit a while after the game and to discuss it.

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 sit next to the canals to enjoy

It was cool to see and hear about the Onze lieve Vrouwe tower. The cadastral centerpoint of The Netherlands. Climbing up the tower requires you to climb 365 steps.. So take that into consideration! The fist satuerday of the month the bell ringers guild gets together and plays the tower bells. Very interesting side note!

Don't get fooled by the train station or the business buidings on the outskirts of Amersfoort. If you venture into the city center, you'll discover a charming town with obvious medieval roots and historic buildings all over.

Good zoo for the kids with lots of different kinds of animals to see, plus a dinosaur park, Playgrounds and stream to splash around in. Several cafes and kiosks around the park, prices fairly reasonable. Not cheap to get into though - Euros60 for 2 adults and a child.
PS the car park was full when we went so we had to park a km up the road, though it was well sign-posted and free.

The Hof is a pleasant and historically relevant square at the heart of Amersfoort's old city. It is not large (but much larger than the other nearby square: Onze Lieve Vrouwen Hof) and has a range of beautiful old buildings. Many have been converted into restaurants or pubs and when the weather allows, these place chairs and tables outside for drinks. This can make the place somewhat commercial and full, but prices are modest and the views are still good.
Perhaps the best day is to visit the square on Saturday, when an o[pen-air market is held. One can see less of the buildings because of the many market stalls, but the atmosphere is pleasant.
Don't forget to visit the church, which is interesting from an historical point of view. And don't forget to visit the nearby Onze Lieve Vrouwen Hof, which is much more intimate. The best tome to visit this square is Friday morning, when the flower market is held.

We went to sample a local beer or two, and ended up sampling most of their tap beers.
The good: decent beer, nice value for the taster plates that contained three small beers, your choice, and some nibbles.
The bad: nothing. Really.
The odd: How was it I'd never heard of them prior to our trip?
Although it's an hour away, I believe I'll be back.

Nice stroll through an orderly, clean and easy access museum. However none of the exhibits had any other language description than Dutch. Big shame. A lot of art exhibits from local painter and some interesting town history. A bit pricey for the quality @ 12 eur.

The downstairs exhibition area could partly use some modernization with audio/visual equipment. It is now filled with older handsets that are noisy to put back into there cradles, especially if a lot of visitors are in the museum. The ceiling/wall ribbon with art that belongs to certain years/eras is neat. The replica of the Paris appartment is a nice touch as well. They do get exra points for the little details in the building, like the colored tiles and for the digital projection of Mondriaan in color moving through his apartment. Well done!
