Amsterdam (NL) - Wilhelmshaven (DE)

24 September - 30 September 2016

Sail wit the Gallant from Amsterdam to Wilhelmhaven. Open for all ages, minimum ages 15 years.

Ports

With more bicycles than people, cycling is an integral part of Amsterdam’s DNA. Hop on and see the city like the locals do! Winding waterways, idyllic bridges and historic buildings – one of the most memorable ways to truly see Amsterdam is from the canals. Amsterdam has a full cultural agenda showcasing the very best festivals, nightlife, exhibitions & events, plus there is enough practical tourist info, hotel, museum, excursion & attraction listings, you won’t miss a thing!

Wilhelmshaven is a town on the coast in Lower Saxony, Germany. It is situated on the western side of the Jade Bight, a bay of the North Sea. It is adjacent to the Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park (part of UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site). Wilhelmshaven is Germany’s only deep-water port, and its largest naval base. Go visit the marine museum, coastal museum, aquarium, UNESCO World Heritage Site Wadden Sea Visitor centre or the “Botanischer Garten”. Or just walk around, enjoy.
