Use your feet, the best to see the old town
Gorinchem's inner town, the old historical part, is easily done on foot. Distances are all relatively small and this way you intensily enjoy the surroundings. Stop here and there to have a drink or something to eat. Gorcum offers a great day out.
For other boat lovers: take a tour
Along the Linge river near the large sluzes that can cut this Betuwe river off from the town, is the possibility to hop on a touring boat that shows you a bit of Gorinchem from the many waterways that surround the town. An example is Vita Nova that organises daily tours from Wednesday until Sundays. The tour starts at 14:00 hours and lasts about 2,5 hours.
Where rivers connect and split
To those who have a boat, arrive by boat over the wide rivers Waal (Merwede) or Noort. For smaller water fun it i possible to enter Gorinchem by rented canoe, just a bit up stream along the river Linge.
At a junction of highways and waterways
How many times have I passed Gorinchem without even noticing it was there. The old town hides under the huge junction of highway A15 (East to West) and A27 (North to South) and sees every day ten's of thousands of cars pass by. until I took the time to turn off and follw the signs "centre" I didn;t know what I've missed all these times. A magnificent little gem in the Zuid-Holland crown, worth your attention as well.
