The Netherlands / Holland Waterways

One could say that the country of the Netherlands was born out of the water. A considerable part of it lies beneath the sea level and needs to be continuously drained. The number of canals, rivers and wide lakes is countless.

It will not come as surprise that boating is a way of life to the Dutch, who spare no efforts to keep their waterways in an impeccable state. As most of the country is as flat as a pancake, there are almost no locks, except for the ones protecting the cities. Rather than offering spectacular sceneries only now and then, the waterways of Holland charm with their variety of gentle landscapes, welcoming villages & ancient cities which were built on the water.

All Dutch inland waterways are open to pleasure boaters. Each adult is allowed to navigate without license any motorboat with a length of up to 15 meters and with a cruising speed of less than 20 km (12.5 miles) per hour. Only exceptions are the vast lakes of the Waddenzee & the IJsselmeer, and the Great Rivers. However, when experience can be proved, exceptions can be made by the boat hirers.

The Dutch province of Friesland is proud of its origins, which are carefully looked after in 'Frysk', a language which is more ancient than that of their Dutch hosts. Friesland is the most sparsely populated area of the Netherlands. The network of waterways however is amazing with a total shore length of 600 kilometers, connecting the 30 lakes.

This region is considered to be the paradise of aquatic sports, with the water being of an exceptional quality. All of the ancient towns and countless villages where the time seems to have stopped, can be reached by boat. Their marinas are very well-equipped but can get crowded. From Friesland, one can continue the trip into the neighbouring province of Groningen and into Drenthe, famous dor its peat canals, which were dug both to get the peat as well as to transport it.

Provinces of Zuid-Holland, Noord-Holland & Utrecht.
The western lake district of the Netherlands is a perfect starting point for cruises to the large old Dutch cultural centres of Amsterdam, Leiden, Gouda, Utrecht and The Hague.

The meandering river Vecht runs from Utrecht to the lake IJ-meer near Amsterdam.  The traders who made fortune in the Golden Age constructed the loveliest of country-estates, castles and charming tea-houses. 

At proximity lie tens of lakes, such as the Vinkeveense Plassen and the Loosdrechtse Plassen, which were dug by man to get to the 'brown gold' which was the peat.  You will find a lively atmosphere in well-equiped marinas.

De River Hollandse IJssel connects Utrecht to the West with Montfoort and Gouda.  Over the river Ouderijn one can join the beautiful city of Leiden. 

To the North-East of Leiden lies the lake Kager Plassen with the world famous Keukenhof, where millions of tulips will welcome you, and the Westeinder Plassen next to Aalsmeer.

You are now well on your way to Amsterdam, where you can cruise the city canals.

The river Zaan leads to Alkmaar, famous for its cheese, or even further to the far north city of Den Helder, with its marine museum.
