The name 'Oude Haven' (Dutch for old harbour) is misleading in the sense of today. This is not a harbour anymore. It is a very nice old piece of Amersfoort though and good for picturesque views.

I lived for awhile at one of the canals in Amersfoort so my view might sounds biased but the truth is, the Oude Haven and the inner city of Amersfoort have a lot of atmosphere. Amersfoort might not be on everyone's list to visit but I can assure you it's worth the few days spending here and wandering through the... More

The old port and connecting waterways of the city are amazing! They are in great shape and show you a piece of history in a most beautiful way. Fun thing is that there are many bridges across the water, most very narrow and only for pedestrians. Stroll around at leisure, in and out of the historic center, and enjoy all... More

Old ports and canals are nothing peculiar in medieval Dutch cities. This one in Amersfoort, however, sticks out as it is not only large in size, but its entry is also fortified by city gates in the city wall that bridge the port, thereby protecting the city from unwanted access.

Good food for reasonable price - nice selection of beers too. Recieved a great service on a regular weekday, fast delivery of food and a well visited place by the locals - judging from the other guests.
