Northern Friesland,

wide and calming

Since the spring of 2005 the shortest waterway between Sneek and Leeuwarden (Sneekertrekvaart) has been re-opened. You can travel this waterway with boat of max. 2.45 m total height and max. 4.5 m beam. This lovely route starts at the lock behind marina "De Domp" in Sneek and leads straight to the Van Harixmakanaal in Leeuwarden.
