Reviewed July 30, 2013

In the historical center of Amersfoort there are a kind of ring-shape streets with beautiful old houses, built in the middel of the IV century, on the spot of the old wall (because there was a 2nd wall the first was no longer needed). Thats why they are called 'wal-houses' (= muurhuizen). One street away from the restaurants and nice long shopping street. Also beautiful canals everywhere.

a pleasant walk along the so-called 'Wall houses' brings you back in history (approx 300 years). These houses are built where the former town wall was, and have used the bricks of that wall (which was torn down to enable the town to grow beyond these boundaries)

Some of the houses have a rich individual history, but it's the collective impact of these well-kept, colorful and varied houses that pleases most. don't forget to look at the beautiful garden, all on the other (external) side.

Historic, but lived in and a real part of the town. An evening stroll revealed lots of beautiful houses and picturesque canal views.

These houses are built into the original city wall dating back to the 1300's. Definitely not a place for cars, the roads are tiny. Plenty of transport options.

Amersfoort is a wonderful city to visit with a unique historical city centre and very good shopping experience and good restaurants and bars as well.
