There is a booming business in the hire of boats and barges on Europe’s thousands of kilometres of beautiful canals and rivers, and it is no surprise – Belgium, in the heart of Europe, is a free, friendly, and prosperous land, with some of the finest cuisine in Europe, memorable architecture, and shimmering pastoral vistas stretching in virtually every direction.
The barge "De 4 Vaargetijden" started its career in 1924 as a barge for freight. For more than 50 years it was used mainly for transporting sand and gravel. Taking 184 tons of freight per trip, the ship's owning family earned good money. Since 1998: after complete renovation, main purpose of the ship is to carry passengers.
Op het hotelschip De 4 Vaargetijden hebben we genoten van een prachtige en zonnige vaarvakantie met heerlijke ontbijten en lunches. Heel veel dank!Mariëtte Halkema (Den Haag Nederland)
