  1. Amersfoort is a municipality and the second largest city of the province of Utrecht in central Netherlands. The city is growing quickly but has a well-preserved and protected medieval centre. Amersfoort is one of the largest railway junctions in the country, because of its location on two of the Netherlands' main east-west and north-south rail lines. The city celebrated its 750th birthday in 2009.
  2. Amersfoort is a small town in Mpumalanga province, South Africa. The town was established in 1888 around a Dutch Reformed Church which was built in 1876. Lying at 1,664m above sea level in the upper reached of the Vaal river basin on the banks of the Schulpspruit, the area was first settled in 1876 when two farmers of the area donated land to the church, where Rev. Frans Lion Cachet proceeded to build a Dutch Reformed church. The new village was named after the hometown of the Dutch farmers. When the area became too small for the growing village, more land was purchased from one of the original donors and the town was proclaimed in 1888. The bridge over the Vaal River was built in 1896 and is a national monument. The township of eZamokuhle lies adjacent to the town and contributes greatly to its economy.
