VENICE OF THE WEST WATERTAXI

From Tuesday 24 May to Sunday 11 September 2022 you can take a surprising cruise on the Oude Rijn from Leiden to Katwijk aan Zee and back to Leiden every Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday.

The boat sails along the Limes, the natural northern border of the old Roman Empire, passing Oegstgeest, Valkenburg and Rijnsburg. After about five quarters of an hour the boat moors in the bustling inner harbor of Katwijk. In this old fishing town you can be on the boulevard within five minutes. Enjoy the sun or get a breath of fresh air on the beach. Behind the dunes we find a nice shopping center and for the old costumes you can visit the Katwijks Museum.
