Amersfoort Things to Do: 80 reviews and 118 photos

by Niekie

Amersfoort used to have a citywall which probably became redundant in the fifteenth century and was torn down. Not wanting to waste the costly bricks, people recycled them in the houses that were built where the wall once stood. Over the centuries these wallhouses were renovated, broken down and built up again, resulting in a mishmash of styles and sizes.

The street 'muurhuizen' follows the outline of the former city wall and is filled with these lovely old houses.

Address: Muurhuizen street
