This whole summer it’s possible again to use the tourist ferry service between the Hook of Holland and Maasvlakte 2. It sails seven days a week between the Berghaven in Hoek van Holland and FutureLand on Maasvlakte 2.
Together with councillor Judith Bokhove (Mobility and other matters), tourism councillor Said Kasmi opened the ferry connection. “It’s great that tourists, cyclists and walkers can cross over again. Especially now that the weather is improving, a ferry crossing is a real gift. The ferry service is a welcome link to the many cycling and walking routes in the area. The improved accessibility of FutureLand, the information centre about the port of Rotterdam, is also positive. Finally, the ferry connection fits in perfectly with the development of Hook of Holland as an attractive tourist resort. Here’s to a great summer!” according to Kasmi.
Because the ferry service is primarily intended for walkers, cyclists, day-trippers and tourists, it runs at different times and at a slower pace. There is enough time to enjoy the surroundings. Those who wish to can spot seals from the deck or view a part of the impressive Rotterdam harbour.
