Today, the Utrecht Vecht is known as one of the most beautiful rivers in the Netherlands. The route from downtown Utrecht is very facinating. You will sail past beautiful Vecht villages such as Oud Zuilen, Maarssen, Breukelen, Nieuwersluis and Loenen.
The Vecht used to be an important main waterway between Utrecht and Amsterdam. Many barges transported their cargo along the Vecht. Today, there is a lot of recreational boating and beautiful salon boats and many sloops and pleasure yachts.
