In Belgium we sail to Bruges and Brussels and from here to Maastricht.

Merlijn's Captain Henk knows all these waters and their natural surroundings well, and knows where the most tranquil spots are to be found.
As from 2011 we sailed our new routes: Bremen-Magdeburg, Magdeburg-Berlin, Berlin-Malchin and Magdeburg-Koblenz. In 2015 we have been sailing more routes in the Netherlands, Belgium and the mid  part of Germany, 2017 we continue sailing the beautiful routes around Berlin again as well as all the other routes.
