Winding its way between Amsterdam and Utrecht, the River Vecht is a wonderful setting for a boat trip or cycle ride. The Vecht flows past seven beautiful towns: each with their own characteristic atmosphere, set against an enchanting background of imposing castles, country estates and luxurious tea domes.

From Oud Zuilen to Breukelen

The Vecht begins in Oud Zuilen, famous for the impressive Slot Zuylen Castle, and further down the river you’ll find Maarssen. Surrounded by country estates, this town is often referred to as ‘little Amsterdam’ thanks to the magnificent river-side houses at its center. Another monument-packed town is Breukelen, a town with a name that’s known as far away as the United States. Breukelen became Brooklyn after Dutch immigrants settled there in the 17th century.

From Nieuwersluis to Nigtevecht

Delve into the military history of Nieuwersluis before enjoying the laid-back pace of life in Loenen and Vreeland: two perfectly preserved towns featuring centuries-old buildings, charming drawbridges and a unique atmosphere. Both towns have working flour mills, which are open to the public on Saturdays. At the northerly point of the Vecht is Nigtevecht, a picturesque town with a 16th-century church and monumental houses.
