2 Boarding options:

  • From the center of Nieuwkoop you can board on the Be A Team Boat and enjoy the beautiful Dutch nature reserve during a 30-minute journey. Along the way the skipper will tell you all about the specific history and origin of these polders. This route takes you to the historic Forge Museum.
  • You can also start from Café Watersport, Zuideinde 29, next to the Historic Forge Museum. This typical small house with the workplace where the traditional craft of the blacksmith with its fires will take you back in time.
  • From there a beautiful walking route will take you back to your point of departure. From the dike you can clearly see the difference in the high water level and low meadows. The specialty of these polders.
