When sailing in Utrecht, consider booking your boat a little longer to sail on the “Kromme Rijn”. At only half an hour away from the city center of Utrecht you can sail quietly through an enchanting landscape.
The Kromme Rijn runs from “Wijk bij Duurstede” to Utrecht and was around the year 1000 A.D. the most important route from the Rijn to the North Sea measuring 100 meter in width. After damming in 1122 the river has become a lot more narrow and is currently only being used for recreation. Furthermore you can find some great places to have a bite, a drink or some ice cream on the river banks
To preserve the serene character and keep the disturbance for the surrounding nature to a minimum, boats sailing on fuel are not allowed on the Kromme Rijn. But because our boats are fully electric it is perfectly fine to take them on the river,
All in all a trip to the Kromme Rijn is definitely worth it.
Have fun on the water!
