The Southern Netherlands and Belgium

The Netherlands and Belgium is bursting with history. This is really reflected on a trip like this, with visits to places such as Antwerp, Hasselt and Heusden. In thirteen days, you'll visit charming town centres, beautiful fortresses, castles and listed buildings.

Monday: Arnhem - Gorinchem

As usual, we will depart Arnhem at 09:30 and soon we’ll be on the Waal River. We'll then turn the prow towards Gorinchem. There'll be enough time to take a walk through the historic centre.

Tuesday: Gorinchem - Willemstad

During the morning we’ll first make a small diversion through the impressive harbours in Rotterdam. You’ll get good views of the many container harbours and sea-going ships. Via the Spui we set course for Willemstad. This lovely historic town on the Hollands Diep waterway is home to many monuments.

Wednesday: Willemstad - Antwerp

We'll arrive in the harbour area of Antwerp via the Scheldt-Rhine Canal. During lunch we'll moor up in Antwerp. The exuberant lifestyle and countless attractions make a visit to this city an unforgettable experience. The 'Meir' and the 'Keyserlei' are beautiful shopping areas. The impressive guild houses around the Grote Markt (Market Square) and the town hall, built partly in Italian style, are witnesses to a glorious past. In the afternoon, a miniature train (*) will drive to the centre, and you can alight to visit the city.

Thursday: Antwerp - Hasselt

The Albert Canal is the shipping route between West and East Belgium. We'll arrive in the trading city of Hasselt during lunch. The city is known as a fashion capital and you'll not get bored of looking at the beautiful shop windows on the shopping promenade. Afterwards you can settle at one of the many terrace cafes in the city centre.

Friday: Hasselt - Huy

Heading upstream we'll pass Liège among other places. Here we'll exchange the Albert Canal for the Maas, also known as 'la Meuse'. The landscape changes and becomes more rugged. During the afternoon, we'll arrive in Huy, one of the oldest cities in Belgium. The fort at Huy, built in 1823, is also known as the Dutch Fort, and lies on a rocky outcrop along the river.

Saturday: Huy - Dinant

The Meuse is now surrounded by the Ardennes, which provides a beautiful panorama. Dinant is the gem of this region. Here too we find an imposing fortress high above the town. You can reach this fortress via a staircase with 408 steps, but you can also use the cable car.

Sunday: Dinant - Namur

We are now sailing downstream, again through a stunning river valley. Namur is our next destination. On a stroll through the historic heart of the city, you'll see beautiful renovated buildings. The citadel towers high above the city and offers beautiful vantage points over the Meuse valley and the Sambre.

Monday: Namur - Maastricht

Early in the morning we'll weigh anchor. After a long day of sailing we'll arrive in Maastricht towards the end of the afternoon. In the evening, you should definitely take a look at the narrow streets around the nearby Vrijthof Square

Tuesday: Maastricht (whole day)

The beautiful town centre and surroundings make it worth staying another day in Maastricht. Today you can take part in an excursion(*) to Monschau and Valkenburg. You can sign up for this on board.

Wednesday: Maastricht - Roermond - Venlo

Before breakfast we'll leave Maastricht and around midday we'll arrive in the lively town of Roermond. On the Munsterplein (Munster Square) you'll find various cafes and terraces. During dinner, we'll sail further towards Venlo, where we'll spend the night.

Thursday: Venlo - Heusden

In the morning, we'll leave Limburg behind and set sail for Brabant. The town centre of Heusden is comprised almost exclusively of listed buildings.

Friday: Heusden - Wijk bij Duurstede

We'll leave the beautiful town of Heusden and set sail towards our last overnight stop on this fantastic trip. In Wijk bij Duurstede, sights including the Castle Duurstede and the 'Rhine and Lek' windmill are testament to a rich history.

Saturday: Wijk bij Duurstede - Arnhem

The Lower Rhine brings us back to Arnhem. At 14.00 we'll moor up, and draw this wonderful and diverse trip to a close.
