To walk

Discover Gorinchem by foot
Gorinchem is one of the most beautiful fortified towns in the Netherlands. A walk in Gorinchem is therefore definitely recommended when you visit this city.

Gorinchem has various walking routes through both the city and nature. Take a walk on the ramparts and enjoy the view over the rivers. Walk the industrial heritage route and see the factories, ports, crafts and warehouses of Gorinchem. Or go back to the year 1672 and walk through the disaster year of Gorinchem.

Prefer to walk in the center? Then do the shopping route in the fortress and visit the nicest shopping addresses in the old shopping streets of Gorinchem.

Fancy a long nature walk? Then go to the Arkelpad. This traditional Dutch walking route is 14 kilometers long and goes from Gorinchem to Arkel. Spot the 3 windmills and walk along the river Linge and the Merwede Canal. Prefer a shorter trip? The Arkelpad is also suitable to visit by bicycle.

After your walk, relax in Van der Valk Hotel Gorinchem and enjoy the wellness and fitness facilities. Take a refreshing dip in the swimming pool and then enjoy culinary delights in our à la carte restaurant.
