Canal Tours

There are many possibilities for a beautiful cruise, both in the city and in the province. There is so much more to see from the water. Take a look at our city and province from a different perspective. The canals and waters of Groningen like to tell you its secrets.


For a cruise in the city you can go to Rondvaartbedrijf Kool. The shipping company has been providing boat trips through the deeps (canals) of Groningen for years. Step on board, look around you, listen to the skipper and discover the history of Groningen. Discover the offers of Rondvaartbedrijf Kool.

Canal boat de Rinus also takes you along the most beautiful history of the Groningen canals. Relax as the skipper maneuvers you through the water, here you really don't have to worry at all.
