Worth passing by when you are visiting the city. Most of these houses were built in the 17th century and are national monuments. Don't forget to cross the canal and look at the back of the houses and the gardens as well!
Lovely street to cycle round to see Amersfoort, it has a few museums and many historical buildings, cycle or walk round it stopping off to see the sights
I studied in Amersfoort so I know this area inside out. When I revisited last year it was not much changed. It should included in your walk around town.
The walk on the streets of Amersfoort is very nice. Occasionally you will feel that you are in an old dutch painting. Some corners remind of Brugge. The town is very small and can be seen in about half a day.
Do walk the full round! It feels a little bit like stepping back in time and you can have a sneak peak to some of the small gardens that people have...

Apart from the interesting history of the development of houses along the former town walls it's a really pleasant stroll past beautiful homes and town houses, manicured gardens and quiet streets. Gives you a feel for the town away from the more touristy parts. Makes you wish you lived here.
After the old walls became obsolete when the city grew in the past, people were allowed to build houses where the wall was. There are now all kinds of houses in many styles. All nicely kept. Lots of flowers in pots make it a pleasant walk.
Walking the loop of muurhuizen was a great way to pass an hour or so. You can stop along the way and read the plaques (in Dutch) about some of the history of the houses. If you can't read Dutch, that's okay, you'll still feel completely charmed by this lovely loop of historic homes. Definitely the top highlight of my... 更多
Muurhuizen is a very attractive walk through the old city by following the city wall. In former times the city wall was used as the back wall for small houses and shops. The Tourist Office offers a small (paper) guide to accompany you on this round trip.
