The Leiden Lakenfeesten

From the 21st until the 24th of june the “Leidse Lakenfeesten” will take place, a festival filled with performances, events and ‘gezelligheid’.

Throughout the whole city of Leiden there is a lot to do on and next to the water. Definitely worth taking a boat trip through the canals during these days.

A public favourite during the Lakenfeesten is the Dragonboat race. Led by upbeat drums the zealous rowing teams will battle to be the first to push their dragonhead over the finish line. This race will take place at the Boommarkt, where our boats are also situated

Have fun on the water!
