Explore Willemstad’s Dutch architecture, pastel-colored buildings and ornate facades during a guided walking tour of the historic city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Your walking tour begins in the city’s main square. From here, we will walk to Kura Hulanda Village, which features many restored historical buildings and is situated right in the city center facing the St. Anna Bay of Willemstad. After this stop, you will walk along the waterway to the Queen Emma Pontoon Bridge, cross the inlet by foot or ferry and head to Willemstad’s historic downtown district. See Fort Amsterdam, built in 1635, which now functions as the Governor’s Palace. A beautiful Protestant church is situated at the rear of its courtyard. You will pass by various government buildings and the old fort’s arched wall, which now houses a promenade of seaside cafés and shops. There will be a brief stop at a marketplace, where local food and other interesting items are sold. During the walk, you will also pass the Mikve Israel-Emanuel Synagogue, the oldest continually used synagogue in the western hemisphere.
