You are here in the South-Holland-lake district. Boat trips such as a city-tour through Leiden, via the Kaag lakes and then back crossing the Braassemermeer, are even great for sailing yachts with a standing mast.
Do you have a motorship or a sloop then, depemnding of the size of your ship, there are plenty of opportunities for a beautiful cruise through the beautiful natural environments such as the Westeinderplas and the Nieuwkoopseplassen.
A day at the Braassemermeer and the Hemmen is fun especially with children.

To be short; a multi-day visit, also with children might be an interesting idea.
