First visit to a wonderful historic town with many preserved historic buildings, towers and best of all CITY GATES (circa 1420). Wonderful old city walking tours. Easy walks. Can't get lost. Many good restaurants and bars

Downtown amersfoort is an absolute must for tourist. The outer and inner wall show the history and trade wealth of the town.
