It is a regional hub with extensive shopping areas, plenty of restaurants and cafés, theatres and museums. Right in the middle is the Tower of Our Lady: the pride of Amersfoort. The inhabitants know its silhouette, its sound and through this – The Netherlands Carillon School, which can be considered to be the Amersfoort city carillonneur.
