The heart of Amersfoort

The church itself is worth a short visit but it's mainly the square with the market and the cafes where you can hang out on a sunny afternoon drinking a beer or two.

Not always open to the public, so if you do find the doors open, go in, you will not be disappointed. If you are lucky, the large organ will be playing, too!

This church is not very decorative. It has market quarters built against it. The triple roof structure is kind of interesting though.

Not as grand as the cathedrals of the bigger towns in Holland, nonetheless, this church is well worth a visit (only€1 entry). The white-washed walls and mural fragments are lovely. Search for the gorgeous clock, and do make the effort to climb the circular stone steps to see the Surgeons Meeting Room.

As Amersfoort grew, this church grew with it. It started small, but with each addition they did crazy things to make it possible. It costs only 1 euro per person to get in, but you can spend a good half hour admiring the inside. For the visitors there are even toilets inside. While we were there, someone was playing the...

Ask one of the volunteers to guide you around. It's a very interesting church, because it's still in use as one and has been for several ages. The architect of the famous Palace on the Dam in Amsterdam is buried here and hes lived in Amersfoort. Nowadays artists are exhibiting their work in this church. This is the onl church... More

Interestingly, this massive church bears the name of a saint, but is protestant (where they have no saints). This is because it was built as a catholic church! They did remove much of the frills and decorations found in catholic churches, but maybe went a bit too far. Although you only pay € 1 entry, the interior is not very... More

Especially like the "Clockman" statue which chimes the hour and half-hours. Massive organ and some remnants of old painted wall murals. Do climb the stairs up to the "Surgeons Room" with old medical relics. Good value €1 entry, and great toilets.

when the clock strikes the hour, be sure to watch for the dragon and the horseback rider who comes out. The bells are delightful.
