Discovering Dordrecht in the afternoon

Here are the best tips for a wonderful autumn afternoon in Dordrecht. A good combination of being indoors and outdoors, eating and shopping, culture and walking: you will experience it this autumn in Dordrecht.

12:00 Dordrecht Museum

Take the time to wander among all the art in the Dordrecht Museum and imagine yourself in another world for a moment. Be enchanted by different painting techniques and go on a journey with Dutch painters from the 19th century in the exhibition "Wanderlust". After visiting the exhibition, your desire to explore will be whetted and you will be ready, after a delicious lunch stop, to explore the city for yourself.

You can't explore on an empty stomach, so settle down in the authentic premises of lunchroom Helena. Here you will enjoy the most delicious Persian and Indonesian lunch dishes. Enjoy a delicious rendang sandwich, a fried eggplant sandwich or go for a classic club sandwich. You'll taste the fresh produce and craft here. After lunch, it's time to discover Dordrecht's (vintage) art, antiques and bric-a-brac treasures.
