Walking from Amersfoort Station to Koppelpoort

I am planning a day trip to Amersfoort. About how long will it take me to walk from Amersfoort train station to the Koppelpoort?

Thank you!

The fastest way from the NS station in Amersfoort (Which I live next to btw) is to take the rear entrance, the one heading away from the station, from the station then turn right. After a few hundred meters you'll come to a roundabout. There is quite a lot of construction going on in this area but you will, amongst other things, be next to the new University of Utrecht (UU) building.

Take the second exit from this roundabout, . You'll find yourself heading towards a pinkish coloured arch which was built as the project office for last years 750th anniversary celebrations. You'll then see the Koppelpoort to your right. It will probably take about 10 minutes to walk there.

Sorry - wanted to thank both of you!

Is there a bus from the station which would get me near to the Koppelpoort?

Any of the town buses (Nos 1 to 10) will take you one stop to the town hall (Staadhuis) which is a little bit closer but its really not worth bothering. From there you'd still have to walk for 5-6 minutes. There is no bus that goes anywhere really close to it.

Can I ask why you have picked Amersfoort for a day trip? Most tourists would prefer places like Delft, Utrecht, and Leiden.

Love Harderwijk and will be going to stay there again. I prefer to discover places lots of other people haven't! Thanks for my other responses, guys!
