Direct surroundings

The Wetering Park

The harbour is located at the Heimanswetering, directly opposite to the beautifully restored Vrouwgeestmolen from 1797 of the Fam. Vrolijk. So from the marina you will always have a beautiful Dutch view on a windmill.
At sunset, the most beautiful pictures can be taken from here.


At 100 m from our entrance gate you will find the Wetering Park. There is a dog outlet/playground, where you can let your dog run or have a swim. A hundred meters further on you will find the Weteringpark with a children's water playground, lawns and a soccer cage.

Public transport

At about 400 m distance from the port you can find the Bus stop Poortwachter. The city bus no. 1, which can take you to the center of Alphen aan den Rijn in 10 minutes (stop Centrum Hoge Zijde) or to the railway station.
On the way back then take city bus no. 2 from the city to the marina (stop Poortwachter). These busses are scheduled each 30 min.

If you walk 1.4 km in straight direction to the east, to the shopping center "De Herenhof", you can take a bus 470 to Schiphol Airport and then from there take bus 397 directly into the interesting center of Amsterdam next to the Rijksmuseum. To the north at the same distance from our harbour is Woubrugge and there you can take the bus to the interesting center of Leiden or to the Alrijne Hospital.

Stores and shopping

Shops etc. are at 1.4 km away in the shopping center the Herenhof, with shops such as AH, Jumbo and Lidl etc. etc .. To make it even easier, there are free shopping bikes available at our marina for our visitors.



There is a Chinese, a  fast food, an Italian and an Indian restaurant in the Herenhof. This is only just about one km walk. In Woubrugge besides the bridge, there is a restaurant on this side of the water and a Chinese take-away and a fast food restaurant in the village directly on the other side of the water. In Alphen aan den Rijn you will find lots of restaurants.

Alphen aan den Rijn and surroundings

The small city of Alphen aan den Rijn has nice attractions such as Avifauna and Archeon, so also fun for the kids.

Alphen aan den Rijn and Surroundings

It goes without saying that various boat trips can be made from the harbor in the immediate vicinity.

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, depending of the size of your ship, there are plenty of opportunities for an exciting 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.

We hope to see you soon!
