Dordrecht has more than 1,000 monuments, several of which open their doors during the Open Monument Days. This year, the national Heritage Days theme is "Sustainability" and with that in mind, we are focusing on both buildings that are managed or restored in a sustainable manner, as well as monuments that are (or were) used for a sustainable purpose.
The program, the walks and the bingo are now available at the VVV. During the Open Monument Days also at the Grote Kerk, Augustijnenkerk and Buddingh. Everything can also be downloaded from this page.
