A day out in Dordrecht is wonderful in autumn. Discover the autumn colors in National Park the Biesbosch, dive into a cozy coffee shop and enjoy a good dinner. End the evening with a show, movie and a nice drink.
Your (re)exploration begins in the green backyard of Dordrecht. Be amazed by the autumn beauty in National Park de Biesbosch. No piece looks the same and nature displays all the autumn colors you can imagine. Take a bike (for rent at the VVV) and explore a larger area or take a refreshing walk and enjoy the details. Make the exploration as big as you want. You'll spot birds, fish and maybe even a beaver. The maze of creeks, meadows, water and willow forests is magical.
Little gates, cozy streets, more than 1,000 monuments and hidden courtyards.... After a morning in nature, it is time to visit the historic center of Dordrecht. Get a typical Dordrecht Appelmarijn at Banketbakkerij van der Sterre, climb the Grote Kerk, photograph the nicest vistas, visit the unique Kunstkerk, and enjoy yourself in cozy coffee shops. Taste the rich history as you stroll past more than 1,000 monuments and stop by the VVV for in-depth information.
After a full day outside, it's time to sit down for a good dinner. Enjoy seafood dishes at Restaurant de Stroper or go for dinner in the monumental building of Merz. Dine in a former post office at the appropriately named "Restaurant Post. In the mood for poffertjes and pancakes? Then sit down at Visser's Poffertjes, a household name in Dordrecht.
Dinner tasted good, but now it is time to get a taste of culture in Dordrecht. You can do this by watching a movie at De Witt. Note: closed until the end of June. A unique experience because this is a cinema in a monument. Or you can enjoy a theater performance in Kunstmin, often awarded by artists as the most beautiful theater in the Netherlands. This national monument was built in 1889. It is clear: in a true monument city like Dordrecht, you can enjoy culture in monuments.
