Boat trip on the saloon boat


Enjoy a leisurely 90 minute boat trip. The covered saloon boat Frederik Hendrik takes you along the river Dommel past Maurick Castle to Nieuw Herlaer Castle. There the boat makes a U-turn and goes along the same route back to the Voldersgat (corner Zuidwal – Oude Dieze). During the trip the guide will tell you about the siege of  ‘s-Hertogenbosch in 1629, the Fortifications, the water management, and also about the flora and fauna in “het Bossche Broek “ a Natura 2000 designated nature reserve.
