City walk with Guild Dordrecht

Fri Sep 27, 2024
11:30 - 13:00

City walk through historic Dordrecht led by a guide from Gilde Dordrecht.

The city of Dordrecht is more than 800 years old, making it the oldest city in Holland. Due to its favorable location at a junction of rivers, Dordrecht became a thriving commercial city as early as the 12th century. Important historical events include the Sint Elisabethvloed in 1421, the First Free States Assembly in 1572 and the Dordrecht Synod in 1618/19.

From the Groothoofd, a city gate from the 15th century, you have a magnificent view of the busiest river point in Europe. Indeed, this is where the rivers Oude Maas, Beneden Merwede and Noord converge. The city has many characteristic inner harbors, has about a thousand National Monuments and takes its name from the small river Thuredrith.

Famous Dordrecht residents from the 17th century include the De Witt brothers and the painters Aelbert Cuyp, Ferdinand Bol and Nicolaes Maes. Famous writers also lived and worked in Dordrecht, such as Jacob Cats, Top Naeff and Cees Buddingh.

Participation costs €5.00 p.p., payable to the guide.

Sign up can be done through: 06-17079743 or stadswandelingen@gilde-dordrecht.nl
