Beautiful Delfland

It is now time to turn towards Schiedam. Along the way you can see the new harbours and Mammoet shipyards. Continue on past the harbours of the Nieuwe Waterweg, leaving the cityscape to enjoy the beautiful rural surroundings of Delfland. Past Maasluis you will follow the Nieuwe Waterweg to Hoek van Holland (Hook of Holland). One highlight along the route will be the Maeslandkering, one of the great storm surge barriers that protect the Dutch from the water.

Fast ferry

Once you have reached Hoek van Holland, continue on to the beach for a lovely walk or opt for a well-deserved lunch on a terrace. If you cross the water with the fast ferry you can return to Rotterdam across the Landtong Rozenburg. Take the ferry to Maassluis to return to your starting point at the Erasmusbrug bridge.
