Amsterdam – Hoorn
Amsterdam is a bustling city with a rich history and dozens of tourist attractions. A visit to a museum, a stroll through the city, shopping or a city tour(*), the choice is yours. During lunch we depart from Amsterdam and continue our journey to Hoorn. The maritime ambiance from days gone by is evident in Hoorn. The “Hoofdtoren” (main tower) with the narrow houses with step and clock gables behind creates a beautiful panorama and gives back the town its appealing and intimate character.

Early today we depart for Sneek which is located close to the “Sneekermeer” lake. The city is rich in monuments and fine cityscapes. The best known monument is the “Waterpoort” (Water Gate) which dates from 1613. However, the Town Hall and the “Grote Kerk” (Large Church) which date from 1498 are also well worth visiting.

Saturday September 26:
Deventer – Zutphen
From our mooring place you walk right into the attractive centre of this city which is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands.

There are still numerous monuments that recall the Hanseatic League period, for example, the magnificent ‘De Drie Haringen’ (“The Three Herrings”) building on the Brink. We will continue our journey during lunch and will sail to Zutphen. At numerous places there is concrete evidence of the fortifications surrounding the city centre. You will not get bored here!
