Ameide is a historical old city that is home to many 17th-century buildings, including the delightful city hall. It is situated on the river Lek. A foot ferry to Lopik (on the other side of the river) operates from here throughout the summer. The annual horse fair on Prinsengracht, held every October, is a lively tradition. The Zouweboezem nature reserve is close by. Ameide and its surroundings lend themselves wonderfully to walks and cycling tours.
