Historic Boating Map

For centuries, West Frisian farmers and market gardeners sailed every day with their barges through the ditches to their scattered fields. Although much has changed in the West Frisian landscape since the land consolidation, elements can still be found that are characteristic of the development of the area.

Together with Vereniging Oud Enkhuizen and Vereniging Oud Stede Broec, we have created a handy and fun boating map: the Historical Boating Map. Pick it up for free at VVV Enkhuizen this summer or download it here.

The existing sailing routes in Westfriesland are easily navigable for canoes, whisper boats and larger craft. On this boating map you see the sailing route of the sloop network and the Westfriese vaarroute. It also shows the junctions and the distance between them in kilometers.
