Explore the water!

No matter how you choose to explore the water surrounding Museum BroekerVeiling, you are guaranteed a unique experience and lovely day out for the whole family. For those wanting to explore the area surrounding the Oosterplas, our electrical prams are ideal. Bring a picnic basket or order one in advance from our restaurant, and don’t forget to bring your swimwear! Along your sailing route you will come across an area designated for swimming.

The area surrounding the Noorderplas is protected, you are not allowed to sail in there with an electrical pram. No worries though, canoes and SUP’s are perfect for exploring the area! If you want to sail a bit further, for example to see Alkmaar from the water instead of the road, you can rent a fieldboat* for a day or half a day. These charming, rustic boats can seat up to 10 people. We have a limited number of boats and canoes available and advice you to book them in advance. If you have any questions or want to book a boat or canoe, please use the contact form below.
