Plan your route


Join us for a canal trip in an open boat through Haarlem. Our tour will take you along the city's attractive waterways including the river Spaarne, Haarlem's oldest canal the Bakenessergracht, the Singels and the majestic Nieuwe Gracht.

This is a unique way to see the most beautiful buildings and monuments in Haarlem.

The maximum number of passengers per canal trip is 12. We keep groups small so you get to experience Haarlem in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. It also means there is plenty of time to talk about the history, art and architecture of the city and to answer all your questions.
Take a look at photos of your canal tour on our website the very same day with our SeeYou Photo Service. In the Haarlem Photo Album, you will find general and detailed views of the most important buildings, monuments and places of interest along the route of the tour.
