Experience Haarlem the best way possible

On and by the water

Discover Haarlem at its best, from the water. Sail with a tour boat, rent a boat or use a sailing arrangement. The Haarlem canals, the terraces along the water and the view of the beautiful monuments make your cruise a special experience. Do you own a boat? Even then Haarlem is a beautiful city to do. The Spaarnestad is part of the Staande Mast Route, allowing passage of pleasure cruises.

Prefer to sail yourself?

Do you like to go out on your own? Then rent a boat at one of the boat rental organizations in Haarlem. You do not need a boat license for most boats. However, it is useful to bring the water recreation brochure. You can request these from the boat rental agency, pick them up at the harbor office or VVV Haarlem, or download them via the website.
