Amersfoort, the city where classic and modern architecture melt together

This more than a 1.000 year old city in the province of Utrecht is know as a medieval town with many historical gates and walls. Amersfoort contains a maze of canals where visitors enjoy boat trips passing by historical monuments and parks. In this article we try to show you a series of modern and historical buildings. We were really surprised of the beauty this small town possesses.

Amersfoort in de provincie Utrecht die meer dan 1.000 jaar oud staat bekend als een middeleeuwse stad met vele poorten en stadsmuren. Het heeft een netwerk van grachten waar bezoekers boottochtjes maken langs historische monumenten en parken. In dit artikel proberen we een reeks foto’s te publiceren van moderne en klassieke gebouwen. We waren echt verrast van de schoonheid in deze stad..

  6. How lovely. Hard for me to imagine canals in a city to sail on, the city walls also.

  7. Lovely and exciting photos as always. The dome building reminds me of the restrooms in Fisherman's Wharf and other San Francisco spots, where they had these little different kinds of buildings scattered about! So different from what I was used to!

  11. Wow, I see what you mean about the contrasting architectures. The snack bar a little out of place.
