Eem Harbour

Just on the edge of the old city centre, there’s the Eem Harbour (Eemhaven) — a lively place full of novel initiatives and handsome squares. Eem Square (Eemplein) is a new and dynamic city square, between the railway station and the Eem harbour, with shops, cafes and a cinema. This is also the home of the Eem House (Eemhuis), featuring a must-see library and the KAdE art centre with changing exhibitions. Right next to Eem Square, you will find The New City (De Nieuwe Stad), a dynamic micro-city with opportunities for work, education, and entertainment. Visit The New City and experience its exciting mix of industrial heritage, parkland, festivals, a pop venue, and restaurants. All this no more than a stone’s throw away from the old city centre.


Amersfoort's historical city centre is filled with big brand stores as well as many independent shops. The shops are generally open 7 days a week. Opening hours vary per shop, but here are a few guidelines: Monday 1 pm – 6 pm Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday 9 am – 6 pm Thursday 9 am – 9 pm Saturday 9 am – 5 pm Sunday noon – 5 pm
