Historical boat trip


From April till October

This boat trip shows you all aspects of the Binnendieze river (the river flows in and underneath the city). Travelling along the small waterways you can admire the finest spots of the historical city centre from above and below. The skipper-guide will tell you about the origins and the restoration of the walls, the underpasses and arches. After passing the Kruisbroedershekel you will leave the fortified city and arrive at the Singelgracht. After the Singelgracht the boat will take you through the Grote Hekel and then again you will continue the tour within the city walls.
