Living in Amersfoort

One thing that might strike an expat living in Amersfoort as odd, is the presence of a huge boulder among the relatively flat terrain. Legend has it that the boulder was dragged from the Soest moors all the way to the city in 1661 by 400 inhabitants to settle a bet between two landowners. This resulted in Amersfoort becoming known as ‘Boulder City’, and the city’s people as ‘boulder pullers’. The city has a long history, with the roughly circular historic center being the main attraction of Amersfoort. The Koppelpoort, probably the best preserved city gate in the country, is part of the wall that runs around the medieval center. Expats living in Amersfoort can soak up the city’s history with many of the city’s oldest buildings being national monuments.

Moving to Amersfoort

Amersfoort is a growing city in the central Netherlands. Expatriates considering moving to Amersfoort can find information and connect with the local expat community using InterNations, which provides a platform for expats to get to know other global minds, as well as the area they are looking to move to. Expats moving to Amersfoort can find details on the essential topics of housing, storage, schools and healthcare, and use the forums and discussion groups to meet other expats. However, moving to a new city isn't just about finding an apartment, so expats wanting to connect with other internationals on subjects such as food and drink, sports and leisure, arts and entertainment, and even lifestyle and fashion, can also make use of the InterNations platform. InterNations can be used as a one-stop shop for any expat moving to Amersfoort.

Working in Amersfoort

With the government having designated Amersfoort as a ‘growth city’ in 1970, many big international businesses now call Amersfoort home. With industries ranging from engineering to hospitality, food to software, there are lots of opportunities in Amersfoort. Expats looking for jobs or information on visas can find answers and get in touch with other expats working in Amersfoort already using the forums and discussion groups on InterNations. There are also a number of non-profit and other foundations based in the city, including the largest home-owners association in the Netherlands and globally. The transport links in and out of the city make Amersfoort a great place to be based for work, with bus services covering the provinces of Utrecht and Gelderland, and rail services further afield to Amsterdam and Rotterdam, among other places. Expats working in Amersfoort will likely look for information on insurance, finance, expatriation and repatriation; all of which are topics covered in Expat Magazine, published by InterNations.
