What to expect

Set off in a relaxing pace to make sure you really get to see, feel and learn all about this town.

The most important sights that your private guide will show are the Groothoofdspoort city gate dating back to the middle ages and situated at the crossing of 3 rivers. Have a close look at the Our sweet lady church with its typical unfinished leaning tower and admire the townhall built in 1383.

During the tour we will take you into the house van Gijn. Van Gijn was a wealthy banker who lived and worked in Dordrecht from 1836 untill 1922. The museum won the important museum prize in 2004 and the jury wrote about the museum: The house breathes an atmosphere as if Mr. Simon van Gijn can turn around the corner any second, holding a glass of port in one hand and a drawing or etching in the other. The museum offers a view into the life and huge art collection of one of the most wealthiest inhabitants from Dordrecht.

In it’s golden age Dordrecht used to be one of the 6 main towns of Holland. In those days the so called Dordt gable was developed. This gable looks like a standard stepped gable as found anywhere else in the Netherlands, but has some distinctive marks that makes it stand apart.

Officially Dordrecht is the oldest ‘city’ of the country. Already in the year 1220, before any other city in the Netherlands, Dordrecht was granted the privilege of city rights.

Make sure you do not miss out on the hidden gems of Dordrecht, the patio gardens.

After about 3 hours time will come to say goodbye to your local host. You can then take of on your own to discover more about Dordrecht, go shopping in the crowded shopping streets or if you feel like taking a break, sit down on one of the many terraces in Dordrecht.
