Walk along the canal

Walk along the canal

From the Stadsboerderij/City Farm, the city guides will accompany you to the bicycle bridge which connects to the Bels Lijntje. On the towpath, the guide will talk about the digging of the canal and the events during World War II. When you arrive at the Nieuwe Kaai (New Quay), you will discover everything about Jos Aerts, the botanist and dialectologist. It is hard not to notice the traces of former industry. You will also see the transformation the neighbourhood has undergone to become a modern living space and a place for tourism. Via Bridge 2, you will walk along the canal back to the Stadsboerderij/City Farm 

The walk takes two hours, as standard.

How does it work?

Book a ‘Walk along the canal’ at least three weeks in advance via Toerisme & UiT. With your reservation, indicate:

  • the desired date
  • the time of the visit
  • the size of your group (maximum 25 people per guide)
  • contact details

The cost per guide is 50 euros (from the third hour 25 Euros extra per started hour). A one-off administration fee of 5 euros will also be charged.

Toerisme & UiT secures the guide(s) and provides you with a reservation confirmation for the visit. Afterwards you will receive an invoice for the payment of the guide and the administration fee. Then you and your group go to the designated starting point for the walk on the agreed day and time.

In case of cancellation, you must inform Toerisme & UiT in writing at least six calendar days in advance. In the case of late cancellations, you pay the total amount and no cancellation restitution is possible.
