Historic cruise on the Vecht River

Country houses, tea domes, green shores and a magnificent saloon boat: isn’t that a beautiful setting to learn more about the history of the Vecht region and its inhabitants? The guide on board will take you back to earlier times.

Will you join us, see some houses?

This cultural package immerses you in the rich history of the Vecht River. All villages and country houses on the Vecht have a special history. Our guide and art historian Juliette Jonker-Duynstee can tell you about it with great enthusiasm and expertise. She also likes to share with you which famous people now live in these beautiful places.
You don’t just view the villages and houses from the water: we interrupt the historic cruise along the Vecht with a stopover in the town of Loenen. There we take a walk through the old and atmospheric streets. Let the past come back to life with this unique package!

The pearl of the Vecht region

Loenen aan de Vecht is nicknamed “the pearl of the Vecht region” – and quite rightly so. Therefore, a visit to this picturesque village should not be missing from our historic cruise on the Vecht. The walk through Loenen takes you past a mill, beautiful enclosures, unusual houses and the Gothic church to the former Kronenburg Castle.
