  • A great history
    With more than 100 years of history of robust steel, impressive carriages and steaming horsepower, De Rijtuigenloods is a crown jewel of the Dutch industrial revolution. At the beginning of 1900, ’De Wagenwerkplaats’ was constructed in Amersfoort on a large area right at the track where train carriages were built and maintained. De Rijtuigenloods is one of the larger warehouses as a maintenance shed for train wagons. This is still clearly reflected in the different rails that run through the location, the hoists on the roof and the monumental overhead bridge above the parking lot. Currently these elements serve as a silent witnesses of the rich history of numerous events.
