Port of Huizen

Huizen has become an attractive harbour town in recent years, with convenient facilities, a picturesque Nautische Kwartier with a hotel accommodation and various restaurants.

In the 'Oude haven' along the 'Botterwerf' you will see authentic fishing boats (Botters) that remind us of the time when Huizen was an important fishing village. There is also a smithy (near by the harbour office) and on the Havenstraat a karting centre, various gym and sporting facilities and a restaurant.

Within walking distance (7 min) of the 'Oude haven' there is a Lidl supermarket. The historic old village and the shopping centre can be reached in about 5 minutes by bike or a 15-minute walk, where you will also find various restaurants, a cinema, a bowling centre and the Huizer Museum in which the Tourist Information Centre is located. You can hire bicycles at the Fletcher Hotel in the 'Nautisch kwartier', telephone number: 0031 35 523 00 10 or 'Gooise fietsverhuur', mobile phone: 0031 6 15 55 35 17.

From April till October the 'Eemlijn' (bicycle boat) sails from Huizen ->Spakenburg -> Bunschoten -> Baarn, along the Eem to Amersfoort. More information: info@eemlijn.nl.
