Cruise the Peaceful Belgian and Dutch Waterways on board your Linssen motor yacht
Nowhere in the world are so many historic, interesting towns and cities linked by waterways as in Belgium, northern France and the southern Netherlands. With the Linssen motor yachts which you can charter in the Belgian bases in Kinrooi near Maaseik in Belgium Limburg, you can combine relaxation with culture in a stylish manner, as you are close to cities such as Düsseldorf, Aachen, Amsterdam or Brussels. Once across the Limburg Border Meuse, you reach the cities of Liège, Maastricht and Roermond. There you can visit interesting museums or just have a great time shopping in Maasmechelen, Roermond or Lille outlet centers. And of course you can also try out the restaurants and their culinary highlights, such as the uniquely abundant range of fantastic Belgian beers and chocolates. It‘s no coincidence that Belgians are referred to as bon viveurs.
Why hiring a canal boat in Belgium?
The Belgian and Dutch-Belgian canals are well connected. There is an extensive network of rivers and canals with surprising locations and destinations. Large cities, but also small villages. All accessible from the water. Your charter base is located on the Meuse, at the border of Belgium and the Netherlands, allowing you to discover both areas. The canal boats are very well equipped and easy to manoeuvre. So they are also easy to sail without a licence or a lot of experience.
If you are a more experienced captain, you can even take a longer trip into the north of France and a part of Germany along the river Moselle and the Rhine. If you take the full route, you would need to reserve a minimum of three, but better four weeks to do this incredible journey across the water. Travel through five countries on one trip. Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg and The Netherlands. All with it’s own highlights, nature, culture and habits. During this trip you will take over 100 locks, go through three tunnels and travel over 1.200 kilometres. How is that for a relaxing vacation on your Linssen bare boat charter yacht.
