Boat trip Den Bosch-Heusden and v.v. with coffee and Bosche Bol and high tea

Date: Time: 11:00 Location: Heusden

Have you ever been to the old fortified town of Heusden? We leave by boat from Den Bosch while enjoying a cup of coffee and a Bosche bol. Then we sail via the lock of Engelen over the Meuse to Heusden where you will have 2 hours to visit this restored fortified town where many artists have their galleries. On the way back a high tea will be served.

This beautiful town on the Meuse has the beautiful old style that it still owes today to a forty year old restoration project. Despite the heavy destruction that the town underwent on the eve of the liberation in November 1944, there are still plenty of historical sights to admire. During the day trip Heusden you will have plenty of opportunity to explore this old town. Take a look at the fish market, the harbour and the St. Catherine's Church. We visit Heusden with a tour boat from Den Bosch.
