Enjoy the lapping water on Lake Veluwe, then go and have something to drink somewhere: in the Hanseatic city of Elburg! You can sail from the resort to Elburg harbour within half an hour.

Walking around the city of Elburg, you feel as though you are in medieval times. The Oude Wallen (old city walls) with their stunning trees, the narrow alleys, the cobblestone pavements and marvellous vistas make this an ambient environment in which you can enjoy wonderful walks. The old wooden boats that still lie in the harbour, 18th-century fishing boats, keep Elburg’s fishing heritage alive. Sail into the old harbour with your sloop and moor. Then enjoy the antiquity of this Hanseatic city. Visit De Vischpoort national monument or Elburg museum full of antiquities. Shop in ancient, narrow streets, get a dose of culture while wandering around the classic buildings and grab a tasty bite on one of the many lively squares. Starting to like the idea of sailing to Elburg with your boat or sloop?


Sailing to and mooring in Elburg

From Resort Zuiderzee, turn the boat to starboard directly after Elburger Bridge. You then sail along the canal that takes you straight to Elburg. Watch your speed, as you may only sail at a maximum speed of 5 km/hr there.

There is plenty of space for watersports enthusiasts, but do not arrive too late in the high season. It can quickly become crowded in good weather and boats soon have to berth side by side. Since the number of marinas on the lakes has increased over the years, the number of visitors has decreased somewhat, but Elburg municipal harbour remains a popular spot to moor. In keeping with tradition, the harbour master does his rounds by bicycle to collect berthing fees. See the costs for a berth at the bottom of this page.

It is the ideal harbour to stay for a few days, as the harbour is being completely renovated and the initial results are already apparent. The new harbour office is equipped with a reporting station and the building also has ample sanitary facilities. The jetties have a power supply as well as running water and Wi-Fi. The harbour is within short walking distance of the centre, through the city gate.
