A hotel is for landlubbers: a hotel-boat is for those who love water. Does this description fit you? Do you feel at home on the waves? Come aboard! Stay the night in a picturesque, rural area and enjoy a peaceful sleep afloat. Sleeping on the waves is no match for any hotel!

The space
De Verwisseling, my ‘tjalk’, is moored in Muiden, 13km from Amsterdam. Originally built as a freight ship, it has been completely modified to entertain guests. The ship is fully authentic, but is also outfitted with all the necessities for a modern, comfortable stay. We like to refer to it as cosy, or ‘gezellig’: a ship where you will totally feel at home. The ship is the ideal size for groups.
Now because of the Covid 19-virus I can only accommodate 8 people.

The ship offers three sleeping areas (4, 4 and 6 people).
You have to go through the four-person area to reach the six-person area. Both of these offer no standing room; who needs that on a ship!? The bedrooms have lovely beds, there is a modern toilet and a comfortable shower. It is always nice and warm inside, and with decent weather you have the entire upper deck to enjoy.
From april till oktober, De Verwisseling, can make (sailing) trips on the Marker Lake (‘het Markermeer’), Lake Yssel (‘het Ijsselmeer’) and the Wadden Sea (‘Waddenzee’). These trips can range from a couple hours to multiple weeks: it’s up to you! On day trips the boat can carry up to 20 guests, for longer trips the amount of bed restricts us to 14 guests. Sailing through the Netherlands gives you a unique perspective of this country!

The town of Muiden lies approximately 15km from Amsterdam. It is a small old fortified town, built round the Amsterdam Castle (‘het Muiderslot’), one of the oldest and most well-known castles of Holland.

Where you’ll be

Muiden, Noord-Holland, Netherlands

Muiden is a beautiful picturesque old town, about 13 kilometers from Amsterdam.
The Muiderslot or 'Amsterdam castle' from the 13th century is the highlight of the town.
There are some cafes and restaurants. In the summer it is nice to sit on the terraces at the lock.
