Talking about versatile towns! Amersfoort is a fortress town in heart and soul that was exposed to a huge number of influences, due to its central position. And it shows. Many describe it as a shopping utopia. Still, the town's best attraction is its rich history. Monumental buildings, narrow alleys and beautiful canals provide an insight in what medieval town once looked like. Contemporary merges with ancient in Amersfoort.
Dierenpark (Animal park) Amersfoort shows a lot to be seen and done. It's not simply walking the paths alongside the animals, but it's climbing, scrambling, sliding and jumping! The klim alles-route (climb everything route) for children takes them on a challenging adventure past the bears, hyenas and lions. This guarantees amazing shots for the photo album.
