We will be pleased to welcome you in Gorinchem, the fortress city of the Netherlands. A fortress city where you are surrounded by a sense of the Middle Ages. This is due in part to the fortress being the largest still intact fortress in the Netherlands. Even during corona there is much to experience and to discover, partly because this is the 400th anniversary of Hugo de Groot’s arrival in the city, after his escape, in a trunk of books, from Loevestein Castle (Slot Loevestein). The city breathes culture, history and camaraderie and lends itself more than ever to a comprehensive journey of discovery along the city walls, the alleys, the Linge harbour and the old centre.
