City cruise

Discover the city of Roermond and the beautiful Maasplassen, the largest continuous water sports area in the Netherlands. To really experience how big the Maasplassen area is and to enjoy your outing in a relaxed way, we highly recommend a city cruise (70 minutes). You can step aboard in the centre of Roermond, at the Roerkade.

During school holidays, the shipping company sails daily and in summer often several times a day. After a cruise, you can go for a wonderful meal or drink in the restaurants and cafés on the waterfront near the Roerkade. The city cruise does not sail from November till February.
