Things to see & do

Discover Dordrecht from the water

There are several possibilities to discover the city in a different way than a city walk or a cycle tour. Take to the water, you won't believe what you see! Book a canal cruise or enjoy a high tea on the water. Below we give you some great tips.

Dordrecht does not have canals, but harbors. The Voorstraathaven is the backbone of the old city. The Voorstraat and Wijnstraat lie on both sides of the water and are connected by graceful bridges.

Si Barone, experience Dordrecht the Venetian way

Dordrecht is most beautiful from the water! At Si Barone they are happy to show you the historic harbors and other beautiful places that otherwise remain hidden. Do you have special wishes or ideas? They provide various arrangements (customized!) together with other local entrepreneurs. A dinner for two, high tea with your friends, a bachelor party, departmental outing or a bridal cruise, everything is possible on the water with the beautiful boats of Si Barone!

Day fishing in Dordrecht

Dordrecht is surrounded by water and therefore there are excellent opportunities for fishing enthusiasts. There is a perfect fishing spot for every angler, such as along or on the Oude Maas, the Nieuwe Merwede and the Biesbosch. But there are also plenty of fish in the Wantij or in the historic harbors in the city center.
