The inner city of Amersfoort has been preserved well since the Middle Ages.

Apart from the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwetoren, the Koppelpoort, and the Muurhuizen (Wall-houses), there is also the Sint-Joriskerk (Saint George's church), the canal-system with its bridges, as well as medieval and other old buildings; many are designated as national monuments.

In the Middle Ages, Amersfoort was an important centre for the textile industry, and there were a large number of breweries.
