A walk around the Muurhuizen - the houses built along the line of the old city wall - is really worth while. The houses are all dated 1550-1650 with very interesting architectural details. Tourists just don't often bother to walk round - perhaps it's the...More

You can see that the people living on this street are either very wealthy or very proud (probably both). Each home is freshly painted and full of flowers and climbing plants. It is a short, but lovely walk through history.

Worth passing by when you are visiting the city. Most of these houses were built in the 17th century and are national monuments. Don't forget to cross the canal and look at the back of the houses and the gardens as well!

The walk on the streets of Amersfoort is very nice. Occasionally you will feel that you are in an old dutch painting. Some corners remind of Brugge. The town is very small and can be seen in about half a day.
