The many historical buildings in Doesburg are clear evidence of the wealth generated in the city in the past. The city's prosperity was expressed in the remarkable buildings, stately merchant homes and impressive commercial premises like De Waag, the Arsenaal and the Commanderij. Names that fire the imagination. When you stand before these buildings the past seems to come alive before your very eyes and you can almost see how the town's citizens and merchants congregated at places like these. There are many small shops that still sell their wares in the same buildings, places where people have plied their respective trades for hundreds of years. Take the time to soak up the magic of this unique Gelderland experience.
