Definitively one of the most famous and most picturesque alleys in the old town of Amersfoort. Make sure, however, that you do not miss the rest of the beautiful, ancient city center, which is at par with the old cities of e.g. Haarlem, Leiden, Gouda, Middelburg etc.

Lovely neighbourhood to walk around in, with or without a city guide. Lovely façades and a good look into "dutchness".

This long almost circle street has some nice buildings that used to be the old city wall of Amersfoort. Some of these houses here are now monument of the city of Amersfoort. It's very nice to take a walk on this street, no shops and out of the crowd. Don't miss it.

This was the original moat/ wall upon which they built these hoses when expanding the perimeter. This medieval city centre is a must visit. Not only for the buildings but especially for the wonderdull coice of bars / cafes / restaurants and shops.

Interesting how some of the original bricks were used in the construction of these houses. Mostly pretty to take a stroll down the narrow cobblestone street looking at the different facades and climbing roses. One house "Little Sluice" has a canal running through.

Muurhuizen is the former city wall, within the wall houses are build. A beautiful piece of history. Walk along the Wall, you'll go around the city. Truly a step back in time.

It's one of the most beautifull streets in Amersfoort. You can feel the history of the city in this street. It's especially worth a visit in summer, because all of the flowers in bloom. If you want to know more about the history of the street and its buildings, you can take a guided tour with Gilde Amersfoort. Check the... More

Muurhuizen in Amersfoort, a half circular street around the dead center of town is a sight not too miss! Spend half an hour there or longer if you like medieval surroundings. The street has been restored in a perfect way. Every building is either permanently inhabited or serves a civlian purpose. When you have satisfied your curiosity the town centre... More

I think that Amersfoort is a lot put in the shade by the nearby Amsterdam city (also amazing) so that is barely unknown (at least for me). Other than that, it is a wonderful and still quite quiet city with a very well preserved city center, with walls and city gates hundred of years old. I really enjoyed going down... More
