Bike Touring Highlight
With its height of over 98 meters, the Onze Lieve Vrouwetoren is one of the tallest late medieval towers. The pride of Amersfoort is the most famous eye-catcher in the city and is also known as Lange Jan. The 'miracle of Amersfoort' was the reason for the construction of the tower. Construction of the tower started after 1450 and the tower was completed around 1500. The tower would symbolize the Mother of God and the extra expanded corner tower the Christ child. The tower is not only clearly visible in the city, but also makes itself heard with its 100 bells, 7 of which are bells. Moreover, the location of the tower forms the cadastral center of the Netherlands, as is clearly visible in the floor of the tower.vvvamersfoort.nl/nl/locatie/1081496055/onze-lieve-vrouwetoren
