Gorinchem, the fortress city of the Netherlands. & Nbsp;
Fortress Gorinchem, a real fortified city, is located in the middle of the large river area. Stroll through the fortress, soak up culture, go fun shopping or grab a terrace. Everything is possible!
The original ramparts are almost completely intact and it runs all the way around and gives beautiful views over the rivers; unique in the Netherlands! Gorinchem is therefore the largest authentic fortress in the Netherlands. Nowhere else will you experience the location on the river as well as 'Buiten de Waterpoort'. Boats and ferries have been departing here for centuries. Even now you can take the foot and bicycle ferries to Woudrichem, Slot Loevestein, Fort Vuren or towards the Biesbosch. And there is a unique city beach!
The fortress is a perfect starting point for beautiful bike rides. From ferry to terrace, from fortress to fortress: there is plenty to discover!
