to Dordrecht

City of water, history, culture and nature!

It is spring, and Dordrecht is blossoming. Spring is the ideal time to visit the city. Stroll through the beautiful historic harbours, visit a museum, enjoy a drink at a pavement café and browse through the many boutiques. Be enchanted by the rich history of the oldest city in Holland. This is reflected in the characteristic inner harbours, picturesque alleys and more than 1000 monuments. National Park the Biesbosch is in the backyard, so also beautiful nature is around the corner. 

In short: on the island of Dordrecht, water, history, culture and nature come together. This makes it the ideal all-in-one destination for a spring trip!

Discover the city of Dordrecht

During a visit to Dordrecht, you will experience the attraction. What a charming city. The inner city is connected with canals that resemble the Dutch Venice. Would you also like to visit nature?

Holland's oldest city is a city of many faces, an island where everything is possible and everyone feels at home. Whether you are an early riser who wants to canoe through winding creeks in Nationaal Park de Biesbosch at dawn, cycle through the polders or have breakfast in the sun on a terrace in the historic heart of the city. It is an island where history lovers will enjoy the rich history and the more than one thousand (national) monuments, but where children also have a great time.

Where you can shop to your heart's content in stylish clothing boutiques and special shops full of antiques and curiosities, and where you can enjoy the many restaurants, (food) pubs and many other places like a Burgundian.
