An expedition on water

With the Damsterveer through the heart of Appingedam.

From April until September, by taking a canal tour through Appingedam, you will have the opportunity to discover the alleyways, canals and small bridges that together form the heart of the beautiful historic town centre. In approximately an hour, the canal touring boat will guide you along the waterways of Appingedam, starting in the Appingedam marina. The Damsterveer is a wooden punt with a character that matches the pleasant atmosphere of Appingedam perfectly and is manned by a team of enthusiastic volunteers.
