Middle Ages
Jan 2020
When you walk through the Muurhuizen you imagine yourself in the Middle Ages. When the city began to expand in 1380 due to the economic boom, a new city wall had to be built. The old wall was demolished and from around 1500 houses were built with the material of the old wall along the line where the city wall had stood. Because the construction of these houses has taken place in different periods, a great diversity of forms has emerged.
Well-known buildings in the Muurhuizen:
De Bollenburgh: the house where Johan van Oldenbarnevelt (1547-1619), born in Amersfoort, spent his youth.
Museum Flehite: Museum Flehite is housed in three late-medieval wall houses, built around 1540. Over the centuries, the original houses have also been used for other purposes, such as a warehouse or even a military hospital.

The most beautiful street in Amersfoort
Jan 2020
This circular street has a fascinating history and truly beautiful architecture, it is like taking a trip back in time. It encapsulates the quirkiness and class of Amersfoort.

Beautiful Amersfoort

One of the most historic cities in the Netherlands with double defense canal and city walls from the middle ages. Nice atmosphere for shopping or just walking around. Plenty restaurants at all levels.

Decided to visit Amersfoort, and wander the old centre, and really enjoyed walking around Muurhuizen and the adjacent alleys and canal paths. Will definitely go back and spend more time in this wonderful place!

Unique!
May 2019 • Couples
These houses are built on the first defense walls of the city and its foundation is from the 14 th century. It's a miracle that it's still there (they wafted to tear it down at the beginning of the 1900s, but didn't have enough money for it thank God). Stroll around and admire the various styles, the well kept gardens and the beautiful canals that surround them. A must do!

Nice walk
Apr 2019 • Friends
Amersfoort is a smallish town 45 minutes by car/train from Ansterdam. If you want to avoid the masses on latter canals head to Amersfoort. Small center city with canals, churches , squares and many pittoresk spots. This road, car-low, is perhaps the best. We loved it.
