Weesp is a town located approximately 3 kilometers away from the last two metro stations (stations Gein and Gaasperplaas) in Amsterdam, however the Amsterdam-Rhine canal geographically separates Amsterdam from Weesp itself.
Weesp is situated next to the river Vecht and the smal weesp, a small canal connecting the Rhine and the Vecht. Weesp proudly exhibits a preserved medieval town center with houses and monuments built in the 17 and 18th century, inner canals, a bastion, a town fortress and three impeccably preserved original Dutch windmills.
Due to its location, during the middle ages Weesp was part of the Dutch defense line for the county of Holland and remained so until World War II.
