Travel Tips for Amersfoort
As I am interested in history of towns and often run to visit all the historical buildings forgetting that not only the featured tourist attractions can be interesting.
This is how we ended up in one of the residential areas of Amersfoort. Walking from one site to another we had to pass through a neigborhood with a beautiful canal and bridges that lead to people's houses. It almost looked like a countryside. The only difference was the paved road by the canal that reminded us that Amersfoort is not a little place in the woods every time a car drove by.
This city is truly different and worth exploring every corner.
The perfect get-a-way from Amsterdam
Only half an hour by train from Amsterdam and one is in Amersfoort. Every 15 minutes a train leaves to this great place that offers a whole different scenery then Amsterdam, still typically Dutch, but a lot less hectic and crazy then the capitol. Maybe even more Dutch, as you will not be overrun by tourists here.
Grote of Sint Joris kerk
Thanks to Olaf_s I now know this is the Great or Saint joris church.
Strangely enough I did not recognize it, have only seen it from the front after parking our car in it s neighbourhood.
One day I hope to really visit this church.
Visit an original (small) river.
The "Heiligenberger beek" is situated in a very green area reaching the old town center by the "Monnickendam" gate. It looks like a park streching from the woods south of the city right to the center. Best seen by boot.
Museum - the Mondriaan house
This house was the place where the famous Dutch painter Piet Mondriaan was born. He lived here from 1872 until 1880, when his family moved to "Winterswijk". A foundation has created the building into a small museum that shows some of Mondriaans abstract-symetrical paintings, that were quite modern for their time and age.
