Guide included

Join the boat trip through the lush
landscape between Delft and The Hague. Enjoy the view of beautiful estates,
windmills and meadows along the 'Vliet'. With the 'Vlietvaart', which is part
of the 'Ooievaart', you can make a boat trip in the months of May till October
from the center of The Hague to Delft, via Museum Hofwijck in Voorburg, and
back. You can break off your journey at the museum in Delft and continue on
your own or use the boat to travel back to The Hague.<br />
<br />
<strong>Route</strong><br />
This boat trip is organised by the
'Ooievaart' from May till October. The trip takes you along the tow path between
The Hague, Voorburg, Rijswijk and Delft. The same route where centuries ago
track boats would go up and down. During the journey you can enjoy the view,
the stately manors and the lush green between the historical cities that make
up the suburb. The ' Vlietvaart' offers the possibility to alight in Voorburg
for a visit to Museum Hofwijck. This used to be the former home of two
illustrious characters from the Golden Age, Constantijn en Christiaan Huygens.
You can return a few hours later by boat or&nbsp; continue your journey on your
own.<br />
<br />
<strong>Hopping on and off</strong><br />
The 'Vlietvaart' departs from the historical harbour in The Hague (Bierkade
18b). The boats anchors for a short period at Museum Hofwijck and upon request
also at the Kerkbrug in Voorburg. For the passengers it is possible to hop on
or hop off. The journey continues to Delft, ending at the Koepoortstraat. The return
journey takes the same route.<br />
<br />
<strong>Return from Delft to The Hague</strong><br />
Apart from a single journey from Voorburg
or Delft it is also possible to make a return. In the months May, June and
October the boat returns after a short stop in Delf. In the months July till
September the boat will depart from Delft after a short delay. In this summer
period, as it is the year of Vermeer, a walk is organised through the street of
Vermeer and a boat trip on the Schie. On the way back also the Museum Hofwijck
is visited. In case you want to take public transport to make your way back to
The Hague there is the choice between tram line 1 or the train.<br />
