Ferry boats

The ferries will go into service on 1 July, with the exception of the ferry in Meeswijk that has already been taken into use.

The Meuse is no obstacle to cycle over the border. Ferries can cross you over smoothly. The cycle route network in Nederlands-Limburg is a little bit different, but the routes join the Belgian cycle routes without any problem.

Attention

The Meuse is an erratic, rain-fed river which causes the river’s water levels to swell and shrink regularly. At both high and low water (drought) the ferries may not be able to sail. RivierPark Maasvallei tries to keep you up-to-date on their Facebook page as much as they can.
