Weekend in Dordrecht

Enjoy a weekend long of beautiful autumn colors, more than 1000 monuments, cozy coffeeshops, a historic city center and nature of National Park the Biesbosch. Take your time and discover Dordrecht your way.

Saturday morning

Start the day with a delicious breakfast at Stadshotel Steegoversloot. After a good breakfast and delicious coffee, you are ready for the day. On to the Huis van Gijn! Here time has stood still for over a century. The museum, as the name suggests, is the former home of Dordrecht collector Simon van Gijn. Imagine yourself back in time in this beautiful building. Extra fun: the 'house sounds' project: by means of a sound installation and special walking route, the sounds of the house return to the house for a while. This makes the experience even more special!

Saturday afternoon

After a morning at the museum, it is first time for a nice lunch at NO. 38 City Bakery Café. An ideal place to kick back and enjoy fresh sourdough bread sandwiches. In addition to freshly ground Spanish coffee, healthy juices and delicious teas are also available. 

Time to head into town! Discover unique boutiques and cozy art galleries. There's plenty for interior design too. Step inside Bluebirds in the Backyard, Jets Favs and No. 28. With the cutest new finds with you, grab a cup of coffee and some goodies at the Stadsbranderij
