Veerboot Enkhuizen - Stavoren


Do you want to sail with us? With the "BEP GLASIUS" over the IJsselmeer. From Enkhuizen to Stavoren, or vice versa. The ferry boarding point is close to the train station. You can take your bike on board  for a bike tour on the other side of the IJsselmeer or as part of a cycling holiday. In Enkhuizen we have the Zuiderzee Museum, a beautiful harbor where you can enjoy good food and a very nice old town. In Stavoren you can visit the statute of the legendary woman to whom Stavoren owes its fame, after that you can dive into the beautiful nature in the surrounding area.

The journey takes about 80 minutes, enjoy the view and the water. You can sit inside or get on deck to get some fresh air. A visit to the Captain in the wheelhouse is always nice, but keep in mind that he is at work and the work requires his attention.

Please take a look at the INFO sheet to read the useful "GENERAL INFORMATION".
