Running Dinner on the Vecht

A Finest and Tastiest of the Vecht

Rederij Belle invites you to a Running Dinner Cruise on the Vecht River.  Let one of our luxury saloon boats show you the beauty of the winding river as you sail to the top restaurants in the area.

Culinary Delights on the Waves

Your exclusive Running Dinner on the Vecht begins in the old village of Maarssen.  From here, you will sail the beautiful Vecht, stopping at two restaurants.  The first restaurant will prepare a delicious appetiser for you, bringing it out from the restaurant so you and your guests can eat on the water.  As you enjoy, the captain will sail toward the second restaurant; here you will disembark and enjoy a perfect main course inside the restaurant.  When you are finished, the captain will welcome you back on board for dessert (if you can bear another bite).  The captain will then sail back toward Maarssen as your cruise comes to an end.

A Panorama of Country Mansions

In the Golden Age, the Vecht was the beautiful getaway for wealthy merchants from Amsterdam.  These merchants bought old country houses and had them converted or expanded into stately country homes with magnificent gardens.  You and your guests can admire a moving panorama of these country mansions during your Running Dinner Cruise.
