Sailing enthusiasts often take to the Spaarne and if you fancy getting involved in the waterborne action, join a cruise or hire a boat from the many companies operating in the area.

The Spaarne

Winding its way through Haarlem is the Spaarne, a river that was once the lifeblood of the city’s economy. Nowadays, the banks of the river are largely devoid of large-scale industry and the river is primarily used for transporting cargo and cruises, which heads onto the Noordzeekanaal via a small lake called the Mooie Nel.
