Parade on the water


Plan your route

As soon as the holidays start, the water towns start preparing for the gondola spectacles. Towering gondolas floating through romantic water towns. In July and August, beautiful, tastefully lit creations float through the canals.

Sitting by the side of the water with a refreshing drink and enjoying the spectacle on the water. That is the charm of a ‘parade on the water’: the gondolas of the water towns Belt-Schutsloot, Dwarsgracht and Giethoorn are giant tourist attractions. During the holiday period, the builders treat locals and tourists to artistic or humorous creations gliding over the characteristic canals in the towns.
