How proud we are that Amersfoort was named best European city of the year by The Academy of Urbanism in London on November 8, 2023.

We knew that all along, of course!

The jury praised Amersfoort for its quality of life, progressive urban planning and innovation while keeping its character and heritage well preserved.

After Rotterdam in 2015, Amersfoort is the second Dutch city to win the title.
