City walk - Day trips Dordrecht
Inspiration & tips

Dordrecht ontdekken is nóg leuker met een ervaren VVV-gids

Dordrecht is pre-eminently a city to stroll through!

City walk Dordrecht, a real discovery

Dordrecht has a rich history, beautiful monuments, a cozy inner city and nature is never far away. Of course, you can take in all that beauty yourself, but also consider a group day trip or city walk led by a VVV guide. Our guides respond to participants' interests and have an answer to every question. Fun and educational." Says Patricia Hoornaar, who puts together the most diverse group day trips at Dordrecht Marketing & Partners.

Almost daily, VVV Dordrecht on the Spuiboulevard is the starting and finishing point for a group of enthusiastic walkers. "Towards spring the weather naturally cooperates more and then making day trips only becomes more attractive for many. Many river cruise ships dock in Dordrecht these days. For these tourists, a guided city tour is often a nice shore excursion. But Dordrechters themselves also regularly make it an exploration of their own city."

Downtown, nature and current events

The choices are many. "The flavors of Dordrecht" involves visiting three restaurants for a starter, main and dessert. In between there is always a short walk through a part of the city center. If you sit down for the next course, you already know a little more about Dordrecht. It is also an option to participate in a photo quest in the Biesbosch. One part goes over water, either in a kayak or whisper boat, and one part consists of walking through nature. There is a clear scavenger hunt element to it and in addition, of course, it is a matter of enjoying nature."

It also responds to current events. As part of "800 Years of the City," intended to commemorate the fact that Dordrecht was then the first settlement in the then County of Holland to be granted city rights, an appropriate route has been devised. "This leads past places where the special stories about the city rights lie and the story of its genesis on the small river Thuredrecht is covered in detail."
