Discovering Dordrecht in the morning

Exploring Dordrecht on an autumn morning is wonderful. Below is an example for the perfect morning. Of course you are free to (wander) through the city, then you will discover Dordrecht at its best!

The city awakens as you take a delightful morning stroll. Coffee shops are opening their doors, residents are setting out, and the soft light of the morning sun peeks between the many monuments. It's still a little chilly but with a hot coffee-to-go from Hazel in your hands, you're ready to hit the road. You open the Treasures of Dordrecht walking route on your phone and discover the city at your pace.

You've enjoyed a good breakfast and it's time to seek out the peace and greenery of the Biesbosch. You rent an electric bike from the tourist office and within 20 minutes you are in a whole other world
