Welcome to the Silver City!

Information for tour operators
If you ever find yourself in Schoonhoven, the Silver City, you should definitely visit the Dutch Silver Museum.

Schoonhoven, the Silver City
Silver and Schoonhoven have been closely related to each other since the 14th century. The city became the centre of Dutch silverforging, silver industry and art.
Whenever you stroll the city centre, you will come across many galeries, workshops and jewelers. And the only vocational school for smiths-to-be is in Schoonhoven.
