Buiten de Waterpoort
The most enjoyable fortress city in the Netherlands is also the most ‘water rich’. Gorinchem is located at the confluence of the idyllic Linge river and the Merwede, the busiest waterway in the Netherlands. The spit of land Buiten de Waterpoort is a mooring location from where you can take the ferry to the picturesque fortress city of Woudrichem and, in season, to the medieval Loevestein Castle. A day tour on the river is a must when visiting Gorinchem.
