The route starts at the statue of Ary Scheffer on the Scheffersplein. This famous painter lived in Dordrecht and many of his works are on display in the Dordrecht Museum. Did you know that Dordrecht used to be a real wine city? Names such as Wijnbrug and Wijnhaven are reminders of that time. Lisette also tells about the many almshouses in Dordrecht. Watching this vlog will make you want to visit all the hofjes in Dordrecht. Download the route description or walk the route with your phone.
All these beautiful monuments have their own story like the Huis de Onbeschaamde. Lisette tells the story behind this special name. The route takes you further to the three-river point with the beautiful Groothoofdspoort, a striking spot on the water. In the Hof van Nederland you have a front row seat to the First Free States Meeting of 1572. Lisette gives you a wealth of information about the hidden history of Dordrecht. You see the old prison cells in the attic of the City Hall and beautiful shining stained-glass windows of the Grote Kerk. But also the lurid story about the lynching of the Gebroeders de Witt has its origins in Dordrecht. After this story, feel like walking through the city yourself?
