Dutch Hanseatic Tour

Round trip from Amsterdam on MS De Nassau from 699 €


Dutch Hanseatic Tour - Doesburg

The Dutch Hanseatic Tour will take you along the Rhine, the IJssel and the old coast of the former Zuiderzee. There are many forests and nature reserves to explore in this ancient cultural landscape, which came into wealth during the time of the Hanseatic League. Small and large Hanseatic towns are testament to this and await your visit. The polder areas in the new Flevoland Province are extensive and modern. The Dutch Hanseatic Tour offers short and long stages and is also suitable for children.
Here you can find more details of the ship MS De Nassau.
