Harderwijk has much more to offer other than the dolphin-centre Dolfinarium. Opposite the Dolfinarium is a small parking-lot, 2 invalid-parkings and some places with a parking time limited to three hours.


Walking upwards from the parking,  you arrive at a stop of a touristic-tour-train, which has a rather high instep. Further upwards you’ll find this town-gate Vischpoort, walk through and you will arrive at the attractive square Vischplein; it is mainly cobbled, but worth while the visit.


When on the square, you take the small street at the right hand side and there, at number 14, is a small fisherman’s house, with the annex of the District museum. Unfortunately you can only visit it by appointment and the museum itself is not very suitable for the not so mobile.


In the Doelenstraat you find a former Convent, which houses a cultural training centre and now and an exhibition of the work of students.


On the square behind, where you can park, you find the Chapel Catharina Kapel, open during the afternoon of Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. An attractive little church with beautiful windows and space for exhibitions.
