Small Dutch city with lots of monuments, old castle ruins, churches and an old town hall. Pleanty of history and good shopping as well as numerous restaurants. Culemborg I think is sadly underrated. It's a good place to spend a touristic day or two but I hardly hear anyone going there. Culemborg also holds the largest bookwarehouse in the country. It's called Centraal Boekhuis and from there most books that are traded in The Netherlands are distributed across the country's bookstores. There's also a gory story about Culemborg. Blood and murder... go look!

Address: 65 km from Amsterdam
Directions: Follow A2 direction Utrecht/'s Hertogenbosch. Take exit Culemborg after 58 kms. For a map see 2nd photo in this tip. And to plan your trip, use www.viamichelin.com
