Boat trip Weerribben


National Park the Weerribben is the largest wetland in Western Europe. Enjoy a boat trip from the visitor centre, go for a bike ride, hike or explore the area with a canoe!

Did you know that the park has been named the most beautiful place in the Netherlands by the NCRV in 2004? This area has so much to offer, from swamp to open water and reed beds. Several animals live here in the nature, such as water and marsh birds, mammals, reptiles and insects. The Weerribben is the habitat of the rare Otter.

What makes this area even more unusual is that each meter was created by the work of man! The residents of the time dug the bog off to make peat. This changed the landscape into a swampy marsh area where narrow strips of land and water alternate.
