Enjoy the sun or the wind on the beach. Behind the dunes you will find a cosy shopping centre and you can visit the Katwijk Museum to view some original Katwijk folkloric costumes. One the way back, we sail from Katwijk along the old Rhine to Leiden, the 'city of discoveries'. Go to one of the many museums and wander through the historical city centre. You can enjoy all sorts of shopping and on Wednesdays and Saturdays visit Leiden’s market.

The ´Stichting De Leidse Rederij´ runs this shuttle service together with ´Rondvaart Leiden´ and ´Bob on Board´.
