As you could read, we didn’t spend an entire day in Breda. We actually fled the city when it became too crowded around 3 pm and drove on to Dordrecht, also in the Netherlands. We didn’t spend that much time there as we wanted to be home for dinner, but we did have a nice walk along the different small harbors.
A finishing stroll by the Dordrecht harbors
We parked our car at Achterom, a side street of the shopping street Visstraat. Shops are open in Dordrecht every last Sunday of the month (and of course the other days of the week as well…), so they were closed now. Luckily, otherwise we might now have made it to the water.
We followed the Visstraat onto the Vleeshouwerstraat and then crossed the water by the Nieuwe Haven.
We walked along the water towards the Dok Straatman and from there we followed the water further along the Wolwevershaven until we reached the Groothoofdspoort.
We even saw this old steamer that was now protected as ‘sailing heritage’.
We then turned back and walked alongside the Wijnhaven until we decided to call it a day and head back to the car.
Dordrecht made a nice closure for our day. We didn’t see a lot of the city but walking through the harbor area while the sun was shining was really nice. My dad actually came back here last weekend. I’m sure he’ll tell you all about it in one of his future posts on here.
