The Vecht region owes its name to the river Vecht, one of the most idyllic rivers in the Netherlands, famous for the many 17th and 18th century country estates along its banks, of which Logement aan de Vecht is one. The area offers an abundance of culture, history, scenic beauty, and recreation, combined with an extensive range of shops, cozy restaurants, and unique accommodations. It is ideal for an unforgettable bike or boat trip, a day of shopping, a visit to a castle, museum or windmill, a walk through one of the picturesque villages, or a day at the beach on the lakes. There’s something for everyone in every season!
Logement aan de Vecht has 4 city bikes (€15) and 1 tandem (€25) available for rent. None of them are electric. If you wish to use these, it is advisable to reserve them in advance. Reservations can be made through the booking module, by email or by phone.
Enjoy the Vecht and take a beautiful boat trip! You can, of course, do this with your own boat and then moor it for your overnight stay at Logement aan de Vecht (mooring for guests of the inn is free of charge). If you wish to rent a boat, there are 2 options:
- Rent a sloop from one of the rental companies in the area (such as Boei26 Maarssen, Korvet Boat Rental in Breukelen).
Take a trip on the Vecht with a skipper. You can easily make a reservation on the website of Rederij de Kampioen.
