Bobbing on the Eemmeer

If the sun’s shining, perhaps you’d like to get out on the water. In Bunschoten-Spakenburg, you can rent a sloop or console boat at Marina Nieuwboer to sail the Eemmeer lake. Are you already a sailing enthusiast? Opt for a falcon.

“The marina of Bunschoten-Spakenburg is a perfect starting point for an afternoon on the Eemmeer lake.”

The Eem is an 18-kilometre long river that officially starts at the Koppelpoort in Amersfoort and ends on the Eemmeer lake. Marina Nieuwboer lies on this lake and is a perfect starting point for an afternoon of floating around. From there, you can discover the Eem and sail towards Amersfoort via Soest. On the way, you’ll come by beautiful nature areas and pastures, as well as beautiful villages such as Eemdijk and Eembrugge. Sailing to a culinary stop? Navigate to Theetuin Eemnes, on the border of the provinces of Noord-Holland and Utrecht, for a cup of tea.

Nice to know!
