It's home to one of the largest Dutch railway junctions with 3 stations namely Amersfoort, Schothorst and Vathorst, so you shouldn't have any dramas getting to the town.

The history buff can get a bit excited, as there are numerous museums and exhibits littered around the city to keep a smile on their faces.
