Round Dordt

The 'Rondje Dordt' city walk will take you past all the beautiful spots in the historic inner city of Dordrecht. Stroll along the harbours with their many monuments, visit a museum along the way or enjoy a drink on a terrace. The route is 5 km but you can walk as long as you like. Follow the signposts in the city or buy the route booklet with lots of background information and photos. You can also follow the route with the izi-Travel app on your smartphone.

Here is a taste of some of the highlights of this route. Buy the route booklet or follow the red signs in the city if you want to walk the entire Rondje Dordt.

Arend Maartenshof

Museumstraat 52
When you walk into the court, you will see the regents' room on the right. Press the light switch next to the door and look through the windows at the beautiful ceiling and the portraits of the regents who ruled the court in the 17th century.

The Insolent

Wijnstraat 123-125
Look up at the facade decoration at house number 123/125: a naked boy. That is why the building has the name De Onbeschaamde (The Impertinent). Around 1650, three brothers Van Beveren are said to have made a bet. Who among them could place the most offensive façade decoration?

Groothoofdspoort

Boomstraat / Palingstraat 37
Walk through this gate and enjoy the beautiful view of the river junction. The Oude Maas, Noord and Beneden Merwede rivers flow together here. If you look up, you will see the coat of arms of Dordrecht held by two griffins.

Screw dock Straatman

t.o. Kuipershaven 169-182
On the left in the water is the monumental Straatman Screw Dock, a national monument and a landmark of the Wolwevershaven. It belonged to Machinefabriek L. Straatman Ketelmakerij, which was located on the Kuipershaven from 1902 to 1996.

When you look up at the largest building, you see Father Time. On his head he is wearing an hourglass, as a sign of transience and the temporary nature of life. On the wings to the left and right of the hourglass are a bat and an eagle.

Grote Kerk Dordrecht

Lange Geldersekade 2
One of the most striking highlights of Dordrecht. As you can see, the tower is extremely leaning (almost 2 meters out of plumb). It is even more askew than the world-famous Tower of Pisa.

Town Hall

Town Hall Square 1
The history of the Town Hall starts in 1383. At that time, the building served as a covered market hall for Flemish merchants. In 1544, the city council chose it as its seat. Nowadays, the Town Hall is used for official receptions, council meetings and wedding ceremonies. The large attic still houses the wooden prison cells that were in use until 1870.
