Travel out of Amersfoort

I would be in Amersfoort for 3 days as my husband is attending a meeting and I'll be free in the day. Any good suggestions on how I can kill time there? Should I make day trips out of Amersfoort? Appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

Hi there,

Plenty of options by train. I'd pick on one day Harderwijk and Zwolle, both on same train ticket and both having interesting old city centres. On another day Apeldoorn, with e.g. HetLoo royal palace and Apenheul zoo. Next to this Utrecht is an option, nice city centre, canal boat and shopping too.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

I live in Amersfoort :-) It's a lovely town.

To some extent any advice depends on where you are based. All of the main hotels, with the exception of the NH are in the sprawling suburbs. To be frank these are uninteresting.

The old centre on the other hand is well worth visiting for a day or two in its own right. With well preserved medieval architecture there are many places to visit and things to do. The restaurants and bars in there are top notch.

As far as day trips out go the obvious choice, as Erik has stated, is Utrecht. This is just 15 minutes by train. Central Amsterdam is only 30 mins away as well. Other advice would depend somewhat on your interests.
